Conan O’Brien pokes fun at Apple’s iPad 2
On Thursday night's show, O'Brien claimed that Apple and its team of engineering wizards was "getting a little cocky". Team Coco then proceeded to spoof the iPad's desktop, thinness, "a pair of cheap cameras," and how we Americans seem to take everything said with an accent and lend it more credence than it actually deserves.
O'Brien, whose humor is perhaps more warm-hearted than his late-night rivals, completely leaves Steve Jobs or a parody of Jobs out of the fake launch video, almost certainly because of Jobs' struggle with cancer. The omission allows the humor to fall where it should: on Apple's iconic status, and how the iPad 2 might be considered a bit more like an iPad 1.5.
We've also contributed to our share of hype, before and after the launch of the iPad 2, even showing you how to get the best price for your original iPad so you can buy a new one. But we also criticize the iPad 2. And, of course, the five reasons not to buy the iPad 2.
But after you've done all that, take a deep breath, another sip of coffee, and watch Conan's take. Then get back to work. After all, you'll need to store up some time to wait in line, right? Or not?
