The video below, courtesy of TechCrunch, could almost surely be an iPad commercial. It features celebrity endorsements, as well as a cornucopia of reasons why Apple and its iPad have revolutionized the tech industry.
While the video is not, in fact, the iPad’s next commercial, it is fascinating to see so many big names tout the device’s wide-ranging appeal. The likes of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley and even DreamWorks founder Jeffrey Katzenberg agreed to speak about the iPad and Apple’s many successes as an acceptance speech of sorts when Apple was recently honored at TechCrunch’s “Crunchies” awards for its many innovations.
Plenty of bloggers have pointed out that Apple has been less than gracious over the years when it comes to the Crunchies. Apparently the company is thoroughly recognized by the Crunchies every year, and every year Apple fails to send anyone to accept the awards. According to TechCrunch, this empty acceptance speech spot has typically been filled by “humor,” but with Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs announcing that he will be taking another medical leave the tech blog didn’t feel like poking fun this year.
So instead, we get some glowing reviews of the iPad and Apple, courtesy of some A-list techies.
