Supply the product for this commercial
August 4, 2010 11:07 AM   Subscribe

I am trying to locate/remember a commercial that is currently airing nationally for a tech product or service. I have seen it around 5 times but I don't want to wait for it to serendipitously pop up again. Help me remember the product that goes a long with the commercial I describe below. (I'm not interested in purchasing the product or anything, I only want to examine the ad.)

What I remember:
Two friends are looking at a computer in around the year 1995. They are in awe of email. Cut to 2003 or so and the same two friends are looking at a computer, expressing awe, this time over wireless technology. Cut to today where the same two are expressing awe about a new technology, the product being advertised.

Side note: In all three scenes, a woman walks by in the background, following the same trajectory each time.

If this commercial is viewable anywhere besides tv, I'd be interested in hearing about that too.

It's an Intel ad. I see it on Hulu all the damn time. (I noticed the background woman in each scene too.)

Oh damn, everyone else beat me to it.

If you're going to examine the ad, maybe you can figure out why those guys are perpetually 2-3 years behind the curve at each step. I mean, is that on purpose? Is it meant to be funny? Or are they deliberately talking down to their audience?
