NBCs Saturday Night Live took on the criticism of Apples iPhone 5 in a skit yesterday, pitting fictional tech journalists against "Chinese peasants" who manufacture the smartphone.
Yesterdays 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 phones camera creating a purple haze on pictures that include the sun.
The shows host, however, soon made the journalists uncomfortable by bringing in three Chinese workers who create the phone – clearly a spoof of Foxconns poor treatment of its employees. The workers compare the journalists" complaints to their own living situations, which they sarcastically state are clearly equivalent problems.
