Tech bloggers' obsession with Apple products came in for well-deserved ridicule on this weekend's "Saturday Night Live."
Posted here by the sometimes Apple-slamming betanews.com blogger Joe Wilcox - an irony unto itself - the bit pits episode host Christina APPLEgate as the host of a fictional "Tech Talk" - digging into the shocking "plethora of glitches and design flaws" in the iPhone 5 with bloggers from CNet, Wired and Gizmodo. (Here is a direct link to the video.)
Echoing the actual picayune palaver turned into poisonous posts, one nerd complains about the innacuracy of Apple Maps and how he's been "forced to use Google Maps in my browser, which is significantly slower."
The ultra-serious Wired-up girl complains "every time I point the phone's camera at the sun" she gets a purple haze on the photo.
