SNL Skit Introduces Tech Bloggers to iPhone 5 Factory Staff

When Apple finally announced the iPhone 5 back in September, some people were disappointed by the phone. Following months of rumors, some felt the reality was a bit of a let down. Additionally, there have been a couple of issues with the device, such as Apple Maps, a reported purple haze in some photos, and easily scratched casing, that have elicited complaints from users and the tech press.

Three workers take turns shooting down the complaints of three tech bloggers, fictional characters from CNet, Gizmodo, and Wired. Each time a blogger makes a complaint, a factory worker responds with a typical 'first world problem' response.

    hastenWonder how much that cost Apple...

    probably the cost to develop a phone and 2 months of listening nerds whining.

    Some people just use their phones. iPhones work well, all flaws considered.
