Facing a Federal antitrust probe and still reeling from the frenzy surrounding a lost iPhone 4G prototype, the Cupertino crew is having a bit of a rough couple of weeks, and apparently hasn't quite recovered any semblance of a sense of humor just yet.
Apple, based in Cupertino, CA, was reportedly less than happy about an iPhone commercial parody aired Monday on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. The parody, depicting the comedian fumbling with the device while trying unsuccessfully to send a text message, prompted an apology from the show's host and namesake.
"I thought it was funny. A bunch of people thought it was funny. You know who didn't think it was funny? Yeah, the people at Apple didn't think it was so funny," said Ellen on her show Tuesday after recapping the parody.
"They thought I made it look like it’s hard to use and I just want to say that I'm sorry if I made it look like the iPhone was hard to use."
