Can't get it to work.

Before anyone says it, and someone will, it is not in poor taste for the band to be doing this commercial.

Why?

The I-pod is a MUSIC player.
I-tunes is a MUSIC store.
U2 plays music.
You can buy their music at I-tunes.

It's no different than if they did their own 30 second spot for the song, except that Apple is paying for the ad... Smart move by the band.

I think U2 enjoy being associated with what is a rather cutting edge aspect of the music industry. With ZooTV and PopMart they were clearly interested in technology and music intertwining, so this is kind of a natural extension of that. It's more like an advertisement for where the music industry is headed (digital) as opposed to an advertisement for a product.

this is brilliant. apple + u2 = beautiful union of two of my most favorite things in life! this is an amazingly smart move by the band. no only are they getting there new single all over tv, but they are indeed aligning themselves with the cutting edge of music technology. lars take note - u2 is doing the right thing here and i guarantee it will pay off big time for them.

I think its a great marketing approach. No one has ever done it and the greatest band in the world is embracing it. Excellent!!
I have a feeling that the album may be released in similar fashion.

God bless those Spanish guys. They're all over U2 like a fat kid on a tootsie pop.
