Sayonara, Steve: an Apple advertising retrospective

Youtube Video News that tech talisman Steve Jobs would hang up his black chief executive turtleneck due to ongoing health issues sent Apple's stock price swiftly downwards. Of course, the company's phenomenal success can be put down to the amazing products Jobs and his team created, but also to the savvy marketing campaigns that promoted them and Ad Age has compiled a retrospective of Apple's top commercials, including classics like the now slightly ironic Orwellian ad to launch the Mackintosh, PC vs Mac, the iPod silhouettes and a range of clever interactive trickery.
