At one place in the ad, the girl’s mother asked her “what are you are doing on your computer”? , then “What is a computer” she replies, the part shows that the company believes that its iPad is going to take over the computers in the future and make them a long forgotten history. This is not the first time Apple is telling people how they can explore its products using the media channel.
