Jimmy Kimmel proves Apple fanboyism is still alive and well with iTime prank Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel decided to have some fun on Hollywood Boulevard with Apple fanboys and the non-techie crowd, showing off the alleged new Apple iTime smartwatch.
The show bought a $20 Casio watch, glued an Apple logo to the back, and went around asking people if they liked features like "being able to tell time and see the date" and if they liked the fact that the watch was "always in airplane mode."

A few Apple fanboys only cared that it was an Apple device, and didn't care that it clearly was not a real smartwatch.

The trouble with TV vox pops are that that the people who went "what a piece of iCrap" get left out.


Its a lot easier being righteous than right.

Fanboys (or haters) of all things are pretty much idiots...or at least hypocrites.

It's true that they probably left out a good number of people who either weren't fooled to begin with or thought it was lame, but it's still pretty funny to think that there are really people like that.
