Why can’t we see this commercial on television? [VIDEO]


Looking back to 2009 and 2010 we recall asking over and over for Google to run some ads on television hyping Android as a platform. Although it would have been out of the norm for Google to advertise on TV, we remember calling for them to give consumers just 30 seconds of awesome. In the early days of Android we felt this would have helped counter all the Apple ads in circulation.
