Apple, no doubt, has a history of creating commercials that resonate with consumers.
And with the recent Facetime ads, Apple has taken it one step further, appealing to the human emotion. But honestly, sometimes the best commercials are not produced by a big-name agency or a famous director.

Three weeks after Apple launched Ping, its new social networking service, Apple still hasn't been able to work out a deal with Facebook to integrate its vast social network into Ping.
