New iPad Ad Looks Like the Old Newton Ads

Apple Debuts New iPad Ad

If the iPad is from the future, then why does its latest ad give me a serious case of deja vu? Well, because everything that's old is new again! Apple debuted a new spot for their magical iPad a few hours ago, and although it has already been noted that it's basically a higher resolution copy of the old "What is Newton?" ads from the '90s, there's something else that caught my attention — the line that says "All the world's websites in your hand."

Since we know a large portion of today's websites are built on Flash (and the iPad doesn't support the format), this statement can't be 100 percent accurate. Nonetheless, it's fun to take a walk down memory lane with Apple, so check out their new ad (complete with a background track of "Gold Lion" from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), just read more.
