Jimmy Kimmel is always entertaining. Whether he's pranking children or making celebrities read mean tweets about themselves, he always manages to put everything into perspective. And it's no different with his latest prank: asking random people to critique the new iPhone 5 (which isn't even out yet) with the older iPhone 4S. Watch the video below to see the ridiculousness unravel, but, spoiler alert: No one can tell the difference.

    Who stole from who depends where you live ! Apple is paying dearly in other countries whereas in the Staes it's the other way around . Technology is moving way to fast and the consumers are the ones who will pay in the long run.

    Hey gurl we ought to have a "resist corrupt-Capitalism party." We ought find old apple products and every 30 minutes place a device on concrete, you give a short speech, and a pretty girl jump up and down on the decedent device. You're asking why a pretty girl; well because I like girls that's why. Yes, then pass the bottle round; I don't drink but apple juice ought to work. Ha ha ha I think you have a perfect idea there. I'll supply two devices I know of and the girls.

    Yes, customers are dummies. Those people who line up outside major Apple branches by the hundreds every time a new product is released... why? :| xD

    People tend to believe what they are told. Especially if it's something they'd like to believe in the first place. It's the heart of advertising. And propaganda as well.

    It's why Fox News is so successful.

    I partially blame Crapple for making every little change such a big deal. There's little difference between the iPhone 4S and the upcoming iPhone 5, yet already people are hyped about it.

    I have a 4S, and aside from the only other Apple products I've had are the original iPod nano and the original iTouch I got around the time they were fairly new (after waiting for a price drop of course). Other than that, I don't touch Apple. I work with PC and nothing else as far as computers go. The only place Apple has ever prevailed is in their music players and phones... well, that, and having the "virus-free" reputation.

    Don't know about the iPad, it's just an oversized iTouch as far as I'm concerned.

    I will say that the iPhone is a pretty good product and by far the best phone I've had, and before this, I had an Android - was NOT pleased with it - but as good as it is, I'm glad I hesitated in investing in an iPhone until the 4S. I've played around with the previous versions, none of which tickled my fancy in particular other than when 3G was introduced, but especially after their bumps in the road with the iPhone, the wait was worth it.

    But the iPhone 5, just forget about it. Give it another four years before considering getting a brand-spankin new iPhone. And who knows, maybe by then, we'll have something better than an iPhone or Android.

    Yep, people who actually like Apple products are dummies ;) Unless you're a designer or super arty or something....in which case I may make an exception. I'm reasonable :)

    You're reasonable, yet you think everyone except artsy people and designers who like Apple products are dummies? That's not true. You're a dummy if you feel the need to have every new iPhone or iPad or Mac computer as soon as it comes out, not if you just like having an iPhone.

    "Sheeple" is a wordplay on people. It makes no sense to say "you are a people".

    Tip: you can just renew your old contract and keep your old phone. The sky won't fall in.

    but i get the new one for free (even though they cost minimum $800 here) so might as well upgrade anyway.

    well yeah, but to actually have a mobile is a little more expensive.
    Costs me 2 hours wages a month.

    Yup! But it costs some more. Cell phones can be a downward pressure on income. As with the old trade of real estate sales. Agents spent most of their time organizing their family and friends social lives and not working. 95% personal calls.

    Or take your old phone and stomp on it and not renew. Now there's an option.

    I suppose. Many people need a mobile phone for work. Or, you know, it's handy actually having a portable phone, which I believe was the perk in the first place.

    For most people who use a cell phone at work, the phone is a downward pressure on productivity. This world was built without cellular. Our grandmothers raised families of 10 children without a cell phone. We went to the moon. What have we done since the cellular system turned on in Los Angeles in approx 1985?

    I didn't say *at* work, I said *for* work. Some people are on call, etc.

    Most people are not on call and already have a phone at work. They need a phone because they fear being alone. They want their mommy!

    Here's the thing if you haven't seen a recent iphone or ever owned a iphone you probably wouldn't know the diffrents. The people here seened to have 4s and compared them side by side and thought the other one was better and looked diffrent in size and weight.

    just goes to show you there's a sucker born every minute. David Hannum
