    wait....so if we vote from the crackberry forum, that's bad. But if we log out, go to Twitter and log in, and THEN go and vote....it's ok? That's the dumbest $hit ever

    My ad would have rated higher. Just a white screen with the words: Blackberry 10 will be released to the public on (release date here). It's hard to stay exited about a phone that's coming... eventually. Give us a release date.

    the heck they took it down...samsung paid...
    Haha funny. On second thought, if they have enough money to show an extra long ad with a couple big name celebs and a basketball star that didn't actually advertise anything in particular...

    You're bound to see a whole bunch of referrers from twitter.com. That's not unusual--in fact you'd expect it, that's just part of the marketing. But if you suddenly see a pantload of hits from rabidsamsungfans.com, that's a little more fishy.

    Maybe all the BlackBerry fans voting for the ad overloadedNFL's servers last night. Would be great to see an apology press release from the NFL saying that they were going to have to upgrade to 32 core cisco servers running QNX due to all the crazy BlackBerry Fans.

    Let's be realistic here guys, stuffing a poll doesn't make the ad good, and when I look at the same poll posted here the BB a is near the bottom anyway. Its already been determined by multiple sources that the ad ranked the worst ad of the super bowl by several different independent sources. Stuffing a ballot doesn't change that.

    Claims "multiple sources", posts one link when asked to furnish them. Seems legit.

    Thanks anyhow.

    I'll post some more when I get home. Its nice to see you imply its not legitimate though. That's easily the most respected analysis done and used in baseline tests for advertising effectiveness by many corporations. Like I said, I'll post more when I have time, but your inability to do your own research shows me your lack of willingness to see the reality of it and that you were only looking to discredit.

    yeah, sure, but getting listed #1 does get you extra exposure, and is that not what it is all about?
    who cares about the ad, exposure is what counts...

    I agree. Exposure is what counts. The fact that the BlackBerry nation is showing strong support should show the naysayers that BlackBerry and the BlackBerry community is a force to reckoned with and not to be ignored.

    Not at all, the ad is weak. I'm just not about to take anyone's random word when such contrary opinions/stats can be stacked as easily as an online poll. So yes please, I would like to see those multiple sources.

    At least link to a news source we would recognize. And how familiar is that news source with the product? Did they gauge public response? Can they come up with a better ad?

    All that matters is if it does it's purpose of getting more sales. Which, at this point, requires convincing people that Blackberry is different now and worth a second look.
