To night Steve Jobs was spoofed on Saturday Night Live as "he" introduced smaller, tinier and nearly invisible iPods in rapid succession. Anyone care ot comment about actors characterization of Steve Jobs?

So maybe this spoof of the iPod may hold some truth. The iPod will evolve into nothingness?

He nailed Jobs's big wave and folding of hands at the end of the skit - I believe he does that at the keynotes all the time. Not a bad impersonation, but I wonder how many in the audience really knew much about Jobs?

I laughed some.

The guy imitated Jobs quite bad. I can do that better. The idea was cool, though.

Now that was funny. Hey, I think the Apple store is down. No wait, it's back up. I'm going to buy one of those new iPods Steve had. Why? Because everybody is doing it!

That clip reminded me as to why I don't watch that show.

Obvious jokes and 2 minutes too long.

Not many there. and not many of the people who even watch TV in the US.

Bad idea for TV, great idea for the start of a real Keynote.

R-O isn't even close to S-U on the keyboard. Your hands must've been a good two keys off for those strokes.

SNL isn't that bad. I wouldn't say it's worth getting sad over.
