It's Apple's turn to strike back at that scoundrel Verizon Wireless

Posted on Tue Nov 24 2009

It seems Verizon Wireless is getting to everyone. Last week, a federal judge said the carrier can continue to run its "There's a map for that" takeoff of Apple's "There's an app for that" spots, thus delivering a setback to AT&T, the iPhone's exclusive U.S. carrier. AT&T had sued Verizon over the campaign, which compares coverage maps and claims Verizon has five times more coverage than AT&T. Now, it's Apple's turn to take a jab at Verizon. In its new round of iPhone ads, Apple deftly illustrates various apps and then ends with: "Can your phone and your network do that?" But don't miss the fine print at the end of the commercial: "3G not available in all areas."
