Apple Vs Samsung Ad: Many people know Ken Segall as the guy who came up with the name iMac for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) while also working on its “Think Different” campaign while part of the advertising agency TBWAChiatDay.

A Leading Company Cheaper Than 90% Of Blue Chips... And It Recently Bounced 12%Apple is actually the smart money’s second favorite publicly traded company (see why it’s important to pay attention to hedge fund activity).

As you can imagine, Segall still keeps a close eye on the Cupertino-based company. Often times, he will share his opinion on his official blog.

Most recently, he posted this article: Apple battling where it used to crush

But something’s changed.

The fact is, it is being touched — often and effectively — by none other than Samsung.”

Yesterday, for example, we wrote about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 taking direct aim at the iPad mini.

So, how is Samsung becoming more effective on the advertising front? Here is what Segall added:
