    Yeah, but I gotta admit. Kevin totally came out the closet as an Apple fanboy on this one!! If Jon Stewart is making jokes about a situation involving some guy having his door kicked in, and his personal computer taken away by Apple, even after they were contacted about their missing phone. Then we see Kevin take it upon himself to get on his show and rant over the jokes made, on a totally different show on a totally different network, all while actually defnding the actions of Apple...That is a fanboy to the core!! Which wouldn't be an issue if they didn't keep denying the idea that he and the rest of G4 defend and stand by any and every product Apple seems to come out with.

    What also makes this so funny is that no other product or company is defended in such a way by G4. Almost to the point that makes me ask, who does these guys really work for, the consumer or corporate America???!! AOTS just lost a viewer based off that ridiculous pointless rant by him!!

    He actually defends his points. The only time he falls back on comedic satire is when people accuse him of not asking hard questions like a journalist should. He then says I am a comedian its not my job to ask those questions you (so and so) are and you are on a news show so you as a journalist should be asking them. Heard it a thousand times before everyone tried to discredit him because he doesn't try to tear down people personally.

    I think it is funny how Stewart preaches social commentary, then falls back on "comedic satire" every time anyone challenges him on a point.

    Actually, that is more funny than the show has been the last couple of years. Not even running on fumes anymore.

    Jon Stewart's rant was more about how Apple is a hypocrite. They advertised themselves as the company that is going to take on the big Microsoft Corp when they themselves have become big bad corp. Jon Stewart never condoned anything illegal in his rant so you aots geeks are making a point out of something that was never said. This rant was just about how bad Apple handled the situation and nothing more. And I don't think Jon Stewart has the power to determine what sites his show is on anymore then you and your co-host do. So the next time you go for a cheap jab at someone make sure it lands at least somewhere in the realm of reality.

    I'm a big fan of both AOTS and The Daily Show but you are wrong on this one Kevin and whats worse is (as pointed out in the other comments) you have stuck up for Gizmodo and now for Apple you should really pick a side.

    More like, really Daily Show fanboys'? It's gonna be ok guys, when a show runs for 10 years or so, it's gonna have a misfire here and there. Dude happens to disagree, let him put his two cents in instead of being whiney gizmodo/daily show crybabies. Plus, his argument kind of makes more sense. Probly should have figured out when they got their hands on some new, as-of-yet unreleased hardware by non-legit means and posted their shiznit all over the place someone might find it to be, you know, illegal?

    Kevin did his rendition of Andy Rooney (60 Minutes) and complained how Jon "missed it big time" and started to talk down on Gizmodo.

    Yesterday he made it seem like Apple crossed the line, and today he's defending them for what measures they are taking to punish Gizmodo (Flip Flop?). Then he said Jon wasted his time trying to take down big corporations like AT&T. All Jon said was, "If you wanna break down someone's door, why don't you start with AT&T, for God sakes? They make your amazing phone unusable as a phone!" Doesn't Pereira cry every other day about AT&T and how their service is horrible? He even mentioned in the end of interview with Rich Demuro that, the phone is still AT&T. Isn’t he doing the same thing he accused Jon of doing?

    It seems like AOTS/G4TV is trying to cover their ass and be in the good graces with Apple so they will not lose an opportunity to preview a product early; if the opportunity is given to them.

    Yeah. think you missed the mark here Pereira.

    First, this is a pretty minor law to break. They bought a phone that someone lost (not stole). And they did contact apple to give the phone back. Apple just didn't respond.

    Second, what did Apple and the police hope to gain by breaking in to Chen's house and taking his computer? Did they think the photos and story would magically disappear from the internet if they took the computer they were uploaded on?

    Just go right ahead and continue to suckely from the teat of Steve Jobs, Kevin. I'm sure he really appreciates support from a show that is basically low rent softcore porn for nerds thinly veiled as a technology show.

    I guess Apple can't do any wrong in the eyes of Kevin. Gotta say I'm with the Daily Show on this one.

    But Kevin, John Stewart is bigger than you. He'll give you a purple nurple and a hertz donut.

    Kevin's rant really surprised me considering he took comedic satire seriously. Kevin totally missed it big time stating that Jon Stewart was "taking a stab at the controversy" between Gizmodo and Apple. What Jon was making fun of was the way Apple handled the situation. What should be taken seriously is that Apple decided to make themselves out as bullies. The Gizmodo guys returned the prototype and still had their doors bashed in like some kind of sleeper cell ring or under ground meth lab. This is after the fact that Apple pretended that the device wasn't real. They are Appholes and Kevin's being a douche defending them and needs to take his ritalin. I agree Gizmodo was accessories to a crime, but was the whole search and seizure necessary?
