iPhone saga hits prime time as Jon Stewart skewers Apple

The Daily Show weighed in on the lost iPhone debacle this week. Watch that video and others that have taken on Apple's saga.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart on Wednesday night weighed in on the lost iPhone debacle skewering Apple over the police raid on Gizmodo Editor Jason Chen's house. Stewart doesn't delve into the whole lost vs. stolen iPhone issue as justification for the raid, but The Daily Show's sketch does deliver some hilarious moments. Riffing off the Microsoft is evil, Apple is good trope, Stewart says, "You guys are busting down doors in Palo Alto while Commandant Gates is ridding the world of mosquitoes? What the f*$k is going on?"

Stewart isn't the only one to get it on the iPhone debacle, check out Stewart's clip and some other selected iPhone debacle-related videos for your consideration:

You can view the video on The Daily Show's Web site.

Letterman's Top 10

David Letterman used his famous Top 10 list to deliver the "Top 10 excuses of the guy who lost the iPhone."

iPhone 4G Search Story

Several people have already used Google's search stories tool to make their own lost iPhone 4G videos. This is the funniest one I've found, but if you think you can do better create your own at youtube.com/searchstories and leave a link in the comments.

What were you thinking?

This video isn't gut-busting hilarious, but this mashup of Gizmodo's posted image of Gray Powell, the Apple engineer who reportedly lost the iPhone 4G in a bar, and the first post-scandal Tiger Woods Nike commercial just works.

Of course, there's one last video I didn't include, but if you must see it, the Hitler iPhone 4G parody can be found here. Go ahead, but ask yourself, isn't the Hitler meme getting old?

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
