Apple Scares Ellen?

Ellen on the iPhone

Apple scares even poor, adorable Ellen DeGeneres.

The other day the popular daytime host did a parody of the iPhone focused on how difficult it is to text on the touch screen. (It is, come on, admit it.) Cute, funny and relevant to many people's daily lives. After all, Apple has worked hard to become a part of the mainstream, and when you go mainstream people are bound to make fun of your little quirks.

But apparently, Apple didn't think it was very funny at all. And so, rather than doing a Jon Stewart, our irrepressible Ellen apologized the next day for making fun of the iPhone.

No, we are not kidding. Click on the image above and you can watch it for yourself. (Hmmmm, I wonder if Ellen owns any Apple stock?) As for those of us in the profession, this is getting even better than following the Microsoft anti-trust case.

    They were definitely harsh on her, They clearly have a huge chip on their shoulder. All phones are hard to use at first. Plus she is 53 and the older generation find it hard to use all phones, if anything she has done them some good because she has told the truth that it is hard to use but has now said now it’s the only phone I can text on. Apple needs to cut the bull****. šŸ™‚
