There is more to Apple's new TV ad, "What will your verse be?" than meets the eye. It contains elements that showcase truths about both Apple and its customers that can't be easily dismissed. John Martellaro explains.
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a time for massive PR blitzes and the fruits of massive technical efforts and trial visions of the our electronics future. Should all the new CES TV technologies and announcements alarm Apple? Are opportunities disappearing? John Martellaro doesn't think so.
