You know you're in trouble if your issues with coverage and signature product becomes the butt of Saturday Night Live, right? Very reminiscent of how John McCain knew his campaign was in trouble when SNL made jokes about Sarah Palin by using her own words, virtually verbatim. Thus, the iPhone and its issues became a highlight on SNL's Weekend Update Saturday night.

It was a short blurb, but it made its point very well, as anchor Seth Meyers said:
"It was reported this week that Google would soon launch its own cellphone as a challenge to the iPhone. Also a challenge to the iPhone? Making phone calls."
Realistically, though, if the Google Phone were to launch on AT&T, it would have the same issues. This is an AT&T issue, not an Apple issue.  At the very least, it's an issue involving both, as some have theorized.

Watch the video:

Right. And when they make jokes about Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and whoever else is out there, it's not newsworthy because...?

"I didn't cry when Bambi's mother was shot... but I cried when HAL was turned off."

They're all a joke.

Sprint especially with their 'Jack-Boots' customer service.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
