    Are they TRYING to persuade women to avoid it? I know we aren't the target market, but why do they have to insult us?

    I agree... there are many of us women with 1/2 a techie brain that are very attracted to the Droid... They had me with the "iDon't" commercials. However, their most recent commercials are very off-putting to the female population here... hopefully they'll find some balance.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't see why a woman would find offense in that commercial, unless they considered themselves one of the self-important princesses depicted in it; who would rather glue some tacky fake rhinestones on their phone than to actually use it properly.

    I'm just sayin' :)

    I thought it was more a slam on the iphone, and some of the ridiculous accessories, that can be bought for it, than a slam on women, But I'm just a dumb guy who loves my droid, so what so I know. :icon_ devil:

    LOL I just have to pipe in about the "sexism" in the video. I really hope that the offended women don't identify with girls who consider themselves "Miss Pretty" and walk around looking at their own reflections in their phone.

    Thanks for the laugh :)

    Since I spoke up 2nd about the issue, then I'll respond to this... no... I'm not one of those "Miss Pretty" types at all.. (just ask my BF who is a SEO/SM Director!!! He loves the fact I'm a techie!!)... there's just a lot of violence to the commercial that is so unnecessary. I know their trying to show that the phone isn't meant to be "pretty" & it's meant to be a workhorse... it's what I appreciate about the Droid. However, that being said, there's a rough edge to the commercial (along with the violent underpinnings) which can really turn off the female population....

    Just my 2¢....

    Haha this is great I love playing devil's advocate. Droidfan, I totally agree with you that the commercial portrays the droid as a workhorse. It's not meant to be pretty, it gets stuff done. To me the rough edges show that its a no-nonsense phone, and thus appeals to a market that appreciates this type of device (all of us here.) It's interesting that although you lovely ladies like the idea of the phone being a no-nonsense workhorse, you think most women will be offended by that?

    To be honest, the commercial was kind of blah. It's focus was definitely centered around Male ego for sure. The over all violence wasn't really 'over the top', but definitely appealing in general to the male ego of something practical, not cutesy.

    Male Ego based commercials like that one and the 'bare knuckled' one is about that, since the iPhone is also going for 'style'. The commercial is not about 'style' but something that does.

    Unfortunately, for some people, the 'practical' approach is often male centric and where as style is often viewed as 'female centric'.

    Where in my statement did I say ANYTHING about appearance? I said, since you missed it, SELF IMPORTANT PRINCESSES. This phrase indicates a state of mind and behavior, not appearence. It leaves the reader asking, "if the shoe fits..."

    They aren't insulting women. They are insulting devices that are pretty at the expense of quality (like the iphone). Those devices are all dolled up but simply don't deliver.

    If that is what you consider yourself, then be insulted (and ashamed). If not, it was not aimed at you.

    So...did I just miss all that violence or....

    I saw a banana get cut up! O.M.G! So violent!

    Get over it. This phone is not meant to appeal to little girls that get scared off by a bit of a rough edge, ok? While this is not my favorite commercial, it certainly doesn't offend me.
