Apple recently joined the sponsors of American Idol.
I wonder if that means they'll rename it Apple iDoll?...
Perhaps one day we'll see Kirsty Lee Cook like this - click to view in higher resolution (yes it's a Photoshop job, just a bit of fun really).
Some possible similarities between Apple products and American Idols:
- Nice to look at.
- Constantly updated and outdated.
- Easy to use.
- Love em or hate, there is no gray area.
- Work right out of the box (we'll some American idols do need a bit of 'tweaking')
- Easily accessible to a wide audience.
- High customer loyalty.
- Driven by a great marketing engine.
