Apple’s new Facetime commercials: Emotional technology demos or examples of our distant-yet-mediated lives?

Apple has unveiled (even online) their latest batch of commercials for the Facetime feature plugged into the iPhone 4.  The commercials without question tag at emotional strings tied to memorable moments in life.

I don’t really know.  You decide.
