Apple, the tech giant, is cutting orders of screens and other components used to manufacture iPhone devices due to weak sales of the iPhone 5. Its rival, Samsung marches on as the company reached the 100 million mark of Galaxy S sales in the mobile market.
Besides its stiff price tag, iPhone sales decline could probably be attributed to criticisms about the device as seen in spoofs and parodies about the iPhone 5.
In Saturday Night Live, Christina Applegate guest stars as the host of faux talk show called Tech Talk and introduces Josh Savage from CNET, Adrienne Terzoli from Wired Magazine, and Dennis Metcalf of Gizmodo who were impersonated by the show's cast.
The first criticism is the disastrous Apple Map and the slow speed of Google Maps viewed using the iPhone browser. The next complaint is the purple hue effect on the images taken from the iPhone 5's camera when the lens is directly pointed to the sun. The third complaint is about the iPhone 5 having a thin and light feeling which resembles three pieces of paper than a smartphone.
The segment switches on three so-called Chinese workers in factory where the iPhone is manufactured. The two groups started to debate about the weaknesses of the iPhone 5 and it includes the Apple Maps bugs, slow performance for games and the social network app Twitter, casing's vulnerability to scratches, and a comparison of its predecessor, iPhone 4, which according to them, performs better.
The talk show ended in a conversation when the host asked the Chinese workers which American product they would like to complain about and they thought Diabetes is a product.
Another video which is a banned promo parody of the iPhone 5 describes the device's both advantage and disadvantages, including upgraded camera cover only, same A6 chipset which is believed to be slower, LTE advantage over Wi-Fi, and Siri's new improvements that can even tell if your spouse is cheating.
