Late night television has poked fun at the gadget wars before, but the frenzy of the iPhone 5 launch has opened up a number of new comedic opportunities.

TeamCoco -- the website behind Conan O'Brien's late night show -- has posted an article poking fun at the iPhone hysteria by detailing "Everything You Need To Know About The New iPhone 5"

- The new iPhone is 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the 4S, making it the first smartphone with specs one can measure in Triscuits.

- Apes that touch the glowing new mini-monolith are suddenly able to turn basic tools into weapons.

- Siri has been upgraded; the "intelligent personal assistant" will tell you sports scores, and automatically place bets with your bookie.

- Price: $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB, $399 for 64GB with two year contract signed in bone marrow.

In addition to Conan's post, Jimmy Kimmel's team took the 'iPhone 5' out on the street yesterday to get first impressions from the general public -- the obvious problem, however, is that the iPhone 5 isn't actually out yet. Instead, they took the iPhone 4S and told folks it was the new 5:

I'd like to know how many people they filtered out of the video for going "umm no this is the same iPhone jackass" notice they only show the same 4-5 people over and over.

$117, 445, 324, 221 in cash as of today. :)
Just a tip: When you separate the numbers with a space, it makes them look like separate numbers, separated by a comma. Consider: $117,445,324,221. I had to reread that once.
