Google Search Gets Shown Off In Two New 30-Second Spots [Video]

In a pair of new thirty-second ad spots, Google is showing off what it does best – search. The spots both feature Google's Search app for Android, using the same cozy, refined aesthetic as Google's other ads in recent memory, even showing off Search's new "search with camera" functionality.

The first spot follows the story of a nervous job candidate, gaining some insight into his prospective employer's interests with a last-minute Google search, while the second spot shows us a "smart Dad" who uses Google Search as a cheat sheet to answer his inquisitive son's astronomical questions.

Samsung Releases Commercial For The Galaxy Note 10.1, Reminds Us The Galaxy Note 10.1 Exists

When the Galaxy Note came out, the cynics and skeptics (myself included) scoffed. "Too big for a phone, too small for a tablet" we said. Well, as it turns out, quite a few people bought it. However, as much as some people may have liked the Note, it's hard to disagree that the stylus would feel more at home on a full-size tablet. Which is exactly what the Galaxy Note 10.1, shown in this shiny new ad, aimed to accomplish.

Lookout Ad Network Detector Now Snooping Out SellARing

With the advent of the latest and greatest APIs, amazing new apps have been made possible. Unfortunately, these developments have also given rise to another, more insidious trend on Google Play: cruel and unusual advertising. For example, ad network SellARing allows developers to play a 10-second audio ad whenever users make a phone call.

Fortunately, Lookout recently released an app called "Ad Network Detector" to help with such obnoxious, intrusive ads; however, up until today, SellARing was not among the detected networks.

Samsung's Big Super Bowl Product Reveal Is A 90-Second Commercial For The Galaxy Note

Yesterday afternoon, @SamsungMobileUS revealed that the company would be launching a "device so revolutionary only an ad in America's biggest game [the Super Bowl] can do it justice." Many on Twitter and across the web assumed it would be the Galaxy S III or a new tablet; while it was doubtful in light of recent rumors that it would be the SGSIII, the new tablet idea was at least feasible.

As it turns out, Samsung is "revealing" the U.S.

Samsung Knocks Apple's Cult Following In New Ad, Tells Customers "The Next Big Thing Is Already Here"

In a new 60-second ad spot that could be described both as hilarious and extremely bold, Samsung tells consumers that "the next big thing is already here" with the Galaxy SII, while taking a pretty strong shot at die-hard Apple fans, satirizing Apple's cult following.

The spot opens with customers happily waiting in line outside a very Apple Store-ish location nine hours before opening. We then see a eureka moment when the customers catch sight of a Galaxy SII.

Google Releases A New Galaxy Nexus Commercial Along With Ten How-To Videos, We Continue Impatiently Drooling

The Galaxy Nexus, aka the biggest tease in the world of mobile this year, is so close that we can almost feel the Verizon variant in our grabby little hands, but alas, it's not out just yet. Google wanted to send us a reminder today, just in case we've forgotten (yeah, right) in the form of a new Galaxy Nexus commercial and ten accompanying how-to videos.

Their message: "Simple. Beautiful. Beyond Smart," and that's exactly the way we like it.

Samsung Galaxy Note Commercial Shows Us What A Phablet Is All About

The massively oversized Samsung Galaxy Note may be an oddity in itself, but one thing is for sure: it's a dang cool oddity. It's huge, fast, the display is vibrant, and comes with a build-in stylus for note-taking and drawing. Sammy is clearly trying to bridge the gap between phones and tablets here, and to be honest with you, it looks like they've done a pretty good job.

To highlight the Note's duality, Sammy just released a new commercial; have a look:

What do you think?

Verizon Shows Us Its Humorous Side In Five LTE Commercials - And They're Actually Pretty Funny

Update: Unfortunately, Verizon pulled the ads. When we asked them why, their official response was: "The ads were pulled because some of the professional service agreements have expired."

Bummer.

It's no secret that Verizon's LTE network is the fastest and largest mobile data network in the U.S. (can't say it's the most reliable though), but to make sure every Tom, Dick, and Harry knows about this, the company has rolled out a batch of LTE commercials featuring slogans such as "Instant Results," "Just Like That," "What You Want.

Best Buy Verizon Ad Fail: Can You Hear Me Now On That Unactivated/Roaming Device?

While watching the latest episode of Breaking Bad today (which I must say is one of the best shows on TV right now), I witnessed the latest Verizon Wireless Best Buy commercial advertising Verizon Wireless phones, boasting VZW's incredible network coverage, ultra speeds, and reliability.

It was going so well until I saw a close-up of the phone that lasted a good number of seconds for everyone to witness... no, not the 4G LTE symbol, and not even the 3G symbol.

New Samsung Ad Tells Us Why The Galaxy S II Is The Best Phone In Existence

It's as if Samsung is looking straight into the heart of America with its newest ad for the Galaxy S II, entitled "The Way We're Wired." The ad hits the soft spot in all of us with its chill-inducing analogies of how we all want to be the best, highlighting philanthropists like Martin Luther King, Jr. and superheros like Batman. Have a look:

Kudos, Sammy. I love it.
