“Good luck surfing the Web with that [iPhone],” spouts a managerial Christmas elf overseeing gifts for naughty and nice revelers, in a new ad for Verizon Wireless. The “There’s a Map for That” campaign has gained attention for not only bashing the iPhone and AT&T but also a lawsuit filed by AT&T against Verizon’s 3G coverage claims.
