For those that thought it was just Samsung making missteps, they'd be quite wrong. Out of left-field Apple recently released three new Mac computer commercials to coincide with the 2012 Olympic games. To say they're not very Apple-like is an understatement. 

Apple claims these ads were only to be aired only during the Olympics (they were pulled soon after the start of the Games), but we think the backlash was so great it was an easy decision to pull them.

 
We don't know if you've been to the movies recently, and we're not even sure if this is a nationwide campaign, but there is the most obnoxious Galaxy S III commercial playing here in Seattle at the AMC theater, downtown. Having gone to the cinema twice in the last few weeks, this commercial has stuck out like a sore, - no, missing - thumb. 

I've tried to block it from my mind, but the premise goes (mostly) like this:

 

As the rumor-mill hots up in anticipation of the new iPhone, more sources are confirming (whatever that really means) that an announcement is forthcoming from Apple on September 12, with delivery of the new iPhone the following week. With the plethora of part leaks over the last few months, the only thing we seem to be missing is it showing up on Apple Store shelves!

Let's face it, with the huge amount of competition out there, the iPhone needs something, and it needs something now. That Samsung Galaxy S III really is looking pretty, isn't it?
 
So the USA just landed a rover on Mars in what must be the most epic fashion imaginable, so you'd think getting a mouse right in 2012 would be a no-brainer, right? Wrong.

See, the idea here is great: Logitech got the Anywhere Mouse MX pretty much perfect the first time around back in 2009. The problem is that this isn't the first time around anymore. It's 2012, and Logitech has done something really, really terrible. They released the Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX, Version 2.0.
