iPhone Commercial Incorrect?

Just recently going back to the dark side, and getting cable again, I have noticed some new iPhone commercials on TV. There is one where they talk about kind of going on vacation, and show you all the things you can do with the iPhone to aide in planning, etc. If you watch closely, you will see the date is August 6th (a Monday) and the time is like 1:25 PM. But when they click on the stocks icon, it updates the stocks, but the at the bottom it says “markets closed” – hmm…

I’m not 100% sure either but then the phone rings, but it isn’t a ringtone that comes on the phone by default – weird. I looked for a couple minutes on YouTube/Google but couldn’t find the commercial to put up here or watch again, oh well 🙂

Steve, the “markets closed” issue is an easy one. In what timezone does the center of the Apple universe reside? That would be Pacific. If that is the case, it is 1:00 PM there when the NYSE and NASDAQ stop trading in New York. So if the iPhone is in the Pacific timezone, the commercial is accurate in that respect.
