Technology put in perspective



Sometimes here in Silicon Valley, we can take our gadgets a little bit too seriously.  It is important to take a step back and consider what we do have rather than the little things that aren't perfect.  Louis CK summed it up nicely in a rant to Conan O'Brien in the video above.

Here in Silicon Valley (and elsewhere, but especially here), people have been complaining quite a bit about some of the issues with Apple's iPhone 5.  This Saturday Night Live sketch does a nice job of putting it into perspective.  If you can laugh at yourself and enjoy a bit of sarcasm, both videos are worth your time.
