is a hilarious spoof that Saturday Night Live came up with for addressing the well-known issues with the new
iPhone 5. Christina Applegate plays the host to a panel of tech industry gurus and a "trap" panel of Chinese
iPhone 5 factory workers. "Tech Talk" faux representatives from real-life entities CNET, Wired Magazine, and
Gizmodo gripe about the funky maps, "purple haze" from the camera, and how easily scratched the case is (these are
the top 3 complaints by users). After smarmily registering their complaints, the hostess then presents employees
from the iPhone 5 factory (Foxconn is never mentioned by name) who proceed to sarcastically address each topic
with responses demonstrating how petty the whining is compared to their life's woes in China under Communist rule.
I won't give any more away; you'll have to watch it to get the full effect of its humor.
I am surprised no
mention was made about the suicides that have occurred in the Apple production factories there. Evidently there
are some places that even SNL will not go.
