SNL takes on the plethora of glitches with the iPhone 5
In the past couple weeks since the iPhone 5 was launched, there have been reports of several problems with the device. Ranging from poor directions given by the Apple Maps iOS apps, to a purple tint when taking images that have a bright light source in them.

Naturally, Saturday Night Live couldn't let that be, so earlier tonight they did a skit called Tech Talk.

Parodied in the skit were "reviewers" Josh Savage (C-Net), Adrienne Terzoli (Wired Magazine), and Dennis Metcalf (Gizmodo), with Christina Applegate as the host to talk about the "plethora of glitches and design flaws".

Each one of them start off by voicing their complaints about the new iPhone 5.....Apple Maps is a disaster and I'm having to use Google Maps in my browser which is slower....Every time I point the camera at the sun there is a slight purplish hue in all my photos....Bottom line is it's too thin and too light.

So what do the workers from China that built the iPhone 5 have to say about the complaints? Naturally, they have bigger problems to worry about, such as real bugs, and having to wait in line 21 days for baby formula.

Check out the video below for the full skit.

This wasn't a campaign against Apple. It was about 1st world problems.

That was funny, is too bad they didn't have actual Chinese actors. But hell, we can't outsource everything. Funny, sad, and pathetic. This country doesn't really produce anything; things mostly assemble here from foreign parts.
