Taiwan TV ad has fake Steve Jobs promoting an Android Tablet
| by Shayne Rana |
One of the biggest tragedies in the tech community, last year, aside from the Thailand floods was the death of Steve Jobs. A true legend in his domain, Jobs has proved to be a source of inspiration to millions of tech fans the world over. His iconic “uniform”, which was a simple Black Turtle-neck sweatshirt, blue denims and sneakers could be construed as some sort of a “Super-hero” uniform to some (minus a cape). Some went as far as creating a Steve Jobs “Action-figure” complete with a matching outfit just to show the world how much he would be missed.
According to a report, Chelsea Chen, a spokeswoman for Action Electronics is said to have made a statement saying - "Steve Jobs always promoted things that were good for people, Apple products, so his image can also promote other things that are good. It's just an impersonator, not Jobs," she said. "We have no choice, but to use Android, we can't use iOS," she further added. There is no mention of Apple, Jobs or the iPad or any other “I” device in the commercial, but the stage set up, back drop and outfit are all reminiscent of any Apple event. Another thing one might notice is the very iOS-like icons displayed on the screen behind the character in the video.
