iBoy Parody Shows What Happens to Old iDevices

April 1 has come and gone, and it's too bad this wasn't uploaded on that day. Eretz Nehederet is a satirical Israeli television show, and reportedly, on the 1st of April, the show covered the iBoy, a new product from the folks in Cupertino (at least, on April Fools' Day).

When the son in the beginning of the spoof asks if his new brother is coming from God, the answer his father says is "almost." The father points to the family's TV, where Steve Jobs is talking.

The family had a problem, at first, switching the language on the iBoy to Hebrew, but they finally managed it.

Eventually, jealousy ruled, and the original son disconnected the iBoy from the charger. Fortunately for the iBoy, he turned up his volume so Mom could hear. While son No. 1 claimed iBoy was lying, it was all captured on YouTube.

Sadly, then came iBoy 2. He was "perfect," and much thinner, Mom and Dad proclaimed. The iBoy was cast aside. It sort of is a perfect example of Apple fanboyism, or in this case, fan-parentism.

For those who upgraded their iPads to an iPad 2, did you cast it aside, as the parents did with the iBoy?

Watch the video below. Don't worry; there are subtitles.

I think liking Apple and Microsoft for what they stand for in some ways is misdirected. The thing with me is Apple generally concentrates on making things popular/aesthetically pleasing. They will do that and lie to you on the other side if they think it is to their benefit. Then on top of that is they are proprietary which I definitely cannot stand. I like my hardware and software to do what I want it to do. While Microsoft is not open there are many open things I can use on there OS so it invalidates there being closed to some point. Whereas Apple locks everything down hardware and software, then has no problem lieing about it in any way, as long as it helps them.

Very funny, I can definitely see the symbolism of being cast away for an Apple product, and then the Apple product being cast away for another Apple product.
