Whoever at Apple complained about this needs to relax. It’s a funny spoof.
Update: Think of it this way. It says something about the iPhone’s brand strength and consumer awareness that Ellen could even make this spoof and that her audience got it. Would Apple prefer that she’d made the spoof about an Android phone instead? I don’t think she could have, not today, because Android doesn’t have the iPhone’s mainstream consumer awareness. BlackBerry does, but the joke was about touchscreens. This is the sort of thing Apple should be happy about.
