Jimmy Kimmel mocks Apple fanboys' need to give company money

Technically Incorrect: The talk show host claims to reveal Apple's latest product. It costs $20 a month. But it's basically just a donation to Apple.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.

Apple just launched Spotify. What can it do to top that?

No, these aren't (just) my own thoughts. These are the wisdoms offered by Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show.

Ever excited by Apple's ability to mesmerize with the slightly mundane as well as the genuinely novel, Kimmel wondered about one more thing.

Surely Apple has that thing waiting in the wings, ready for the right moment.

In fact, Kimmel claimed to know what it is. So he presented the first ad for Apple's latest product. This involves Apple fanboys handing over $20 a month to the company, while the company thinks about what to do with it.

Apple already has so much money that some were pleading this week for it to buy Greece. Some of them were Greeks. Yes, they don't worry about Apples bearing gifts.

Still, this is the next revolution. You give Apple money and Apple has a long think what to do with it. Rebuild America's bridges and have them all looking like iPhones, perhaps. Or build cars that you can control with your Apple Watch.

The possibilities are endless. Because, to Kimmel's eyes, the fans are mindless.
