Tech Ads at the Super Bowl

If yesterday’s Super Bowl told you anything, it should be that tech companies are feeling flush again.  At $3M per, Super Bowl ads weren’t cheap.  Some appear to have hit their mark, others not so much.  TechCrunch has a nice roundup here.  The group I watched the game with liked the Groupon ads, the Faith Hill Teleflora.com ad, and the Doritos ad with the pug hitting the screen door (not tech, but funny).  The ETRADE ads are always a hit – something about a talking baby just works.  Most of the people I was with don’t know what Chatter is, and thus the Salesforce.com ads were lost on them (I happened to like them).
