Fake iPhone ads surface
Rumors surrounding Apple's suspected forthcoming products have spurred another round of fake ads on YouTube, this time depicting the company's suspected "iPhone." One ad shows a young woman wandering through an apparent art gallery, with one picture transforming into an iPod interface offering phone calls, email, music, movies, and image viewing capability accompanied by a series of dancing silhouettes, according to Macworld UK. The Cupertino-based company was said to be searching for an iPhone supplier in March, and reportedly partnered with Softbank to launch the new phone in Japan some time this year. Columnist Walt Mossberg supported the iPhone rumors in early May, and analyst firm Merill Lynch upgraded Apple's stock in earlier this month to reflect suspicions of the upcoming handset.
