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.
Always on top of the latest issues, Saturday Night Live this past weekend featured an iPhone 5 skit that saw members of the tech press take their complaints directly to the people that work in the factories assembling the device. 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.

while SNL can still make headlines, it's just not that funny anymore. every decade and every new set of "comedians" gets worse and worseReply
Funny cause its true :,( hehe...Reply
hastenWonder how much that cost Apple...Reply
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.

No, it's just you getting old. It's normal, but try not to whine, it's annoying to us young people.

Nothing to do with age. SNL simply is not funny. Too many TV hours to fill and too little good material.
hastenNot sure you understand my post. oooohhh. You mean Apple PAID to have that skit run? Oh. oh now thats clever.Reply
did you get my point?
they didn't pay. SNL just got tired of hearing nerds whine about a functional computer that fits in your pocket. One that you dont have to root to use.

Have to agree, MadTV
I have a serious complaint about this video: I almost choked on my drink! No, it's not my fault for drinking while watching!Reply
But seriously, that was hilarious. "That must be so hard for youuuuuu...."
