Apple decided to throw out a few jabs as a friendly savior, protecting its own interests in the process. You wouldn’t just stand by and let your close friend take a beating – especially not when you have all kinds of money tied up with him. Apple’s latest round of ads takes a few quick pokes at Verizon, whose AT&T coverage maps are now infamous. Far from a full-on assault, the ads are dressed up like traditional iPhone ads albeit with a subtle “Can your phone and your network do that?” thrown in at the end. Not exactly the big-brother bully beat down you wanted to see as a kid, but more of a proverbial warning shove that won’t likely escalate to much of anything. [via Engadget]
