On his talk show last week, Jimmy Kimmel expressed his dissatisfaction with Apple's iPad Mini, with the tablet touted as a a bigger iPod you can't talk on.
He told the audience that for the millions of consumers who have yet to regain power due to Hurricane Sandy, Apple is releasing a new "paperweight" with the mini tablet.
Due to the storm, Kimmel said customers in New York or New Jersey who stands in line for an iPad Mini this weekend should be "punched in the throat." Those who have that sort of time should consider volunteering, he stressed.
"First came the iPod, then a slightly thinner iPod, then a tinier iPod, then a taller, thinner iPod, then a taller, thinner iPod that shuffles your songs, then a pink one, a blue one, a green one, then an even smaller iPod, then a wider iPod," he said in an Apple promo spoof.
"[After those, came] an iPod you can touch, then an iPod you can talk on, then an iPod you can talk on with a G on it, then a shorter, fatter iPod, then a shorter, fatter iPod that shuffles, then a thinner iPod you can talk on with a 4 on it, then a gigantic iPod you cannot talk on, then a gigantic iPod you cannot talk on that's a little faster, then a white one, then a taller, thinner iPod you can talk on, and now a bigger but not gigantic iPod you cannot talk on."
In closing, the promo told consumers not to forget to purchase the charger for the new Lightning connector.
