Saturday Night Live takes on iPhone 5 criticism

 

NBC's Saturday Night Live took on the criticism of Apple's iPhone 5 in a skit yesterday, pitting fictional tech journalists against "Chinese peasants" who manufacture the smartphone.

Yesterday's skit featured fictional journalists from CNET, Gizmodo and Wired Magazine discussing the flaws and glitches in the iPhone 5 in a panel on a technology show. The journalists all cited many of the flaws with the phone, such as the problems with Apple Maps and issues with the phone's camera creating a purple haze on pictures that include the sun.

The show's host, however, soon made the journalists uncomfortable by bringing in three Chinese workers who create the phone – clearly a spoof of Foxconn's poor treatment of its employees. The workers compare the journalists' complaints to their own living situations, which they sarcastically state are clearly equivalent problems.
