Apple Makes the Week That Was

The Daily Show on Apple

Bash in a reporter's door: There's an app for that.

Jon Stewart doesn't do the best Jerry Lewis impersonation, but he does capture the zeitgeist in this segment on Apple's, uh, handling of Gizmodo outing the company's forthcoming iPhone update (expect an official announcement in June at Apple's regularly scheduled conference).

From nearly all quarters–fans, critics, and technophobes–the reaction to Apple's reaction has been pretty much universal: What's the big deal? It's just a phone. (Okay, some of my mainstream media colleagues fretted about the ethics of paying for the phone, but the same people pay for photos and other information, so it sounded more like sour grapes.)

Well, at least the whole crazy affair made for a nice break from worrying about morally bankrupt Wall Street types and oil-covered beaches. Check out the Daily Show clip, it picks up steam and as always there's a cute punchline.
