Time for fun: Stephen Colbert also takes a jab at the Apple Watch
posted by Peter K. / Sep 11, 2014, 7:01 AM
Just as any other Apple product, the Apple Watch caused a lot of public reactions, unlike any other smartwatch until now. Many liked it, many didn't, but almost everybody who has seen the Apple Watch has surely formed their own opinion and probably taken a straight jab at the gadget. From humorous tweets to funny parodies, the Apple Watch became a target to a lot of media ridicule.
One of the latest public figures that decided to parody the Apple Watch was TV host and comedian, Stephen Colbert. In his Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report, he recently treated the Apple Watch with a hefty amount of satire and made fun of the wearable, comparing it with a “calculator watch” for nerds. Eventually, he even showcases what another wearable made by Apple might look like – the ”WristPad”, which is nothing but an Apple tablet taped on the wrist. Hee-hee.
The entertaining video is embedded below for your viewing pleasure. You can also check out our round-up of info regarding Apple's Watch.

Funny but all those shows making fun of Apple, I doubt Apple minds. For in the mean time, the American audience knows about the newest iPhone and now the Apple watch. Free commercial time for Apple. Since they hardly make fun of Motorola or Samsung, everyday people don't know they make smartwatches too.

At last someone with a brain. The old saying goes, there is no such thing as bad publicity. All these late shows and mocking, are only going to increase Apple's bottom line. Apple is going to sell more of these, than all Android combined.
