Apple’s New Ad Is Probably Going to Give You Chills

Especially if you like the Pixies

Apple’s latest television advertisement, airing on major networks last night, turns to an old alt-rock stand by to get its point across.

The ad closes with a new tagline: “You’re more powerful than you think.”

It is expected to report fiscal second-quarter earnings of $10.18 per share—just 1 percent growth year over year—on revenue of $43.53 billion, according to a survey of analysts by Thomson Reuters.
