Yesterday we shared a funny Best Buy ad pitting the coming ASUS Eee Pad Transformer up against a 'duct taped' iPad lookalike. It appears that someone at Best Buy got nervous about upsetting Apple and pulled the promo already. Previously the promo was a "Like That. But Better." webpage here. Now, it's just a "page not found" placeholder. It sorta makes sense that Best Buy might yank the ad, since they are one of the few places outside of an Apple store where you can actually buy an iPad. Still, it makes you wonder how the ad was put up to begin with. There are no reports that Apple complained, so it's entirely possible that they wouldn't have cared and Best Buy just jumped the gun.
