Just in case you had any doubts that the iPhone has trescended mere techdom to become the cultural trend du jour for January, perennial TV sketch show Saturday Night Live mocked both Steve Jobs and the iPhone in a recent episode.

Just in case you had any doubts that the iPhone has trescended mere techdom to become the cultural trend du jour for January, perennial TV sketch show Saturday Night Live mocked both Steve Jobs and the iPhone in a recent episode.A highlight of the SNL iPhone parody includes this gem:

"You can film a movie while watching a movie and making a phone call, all while watching your favorite episode of The Office. It holds over 150 gabillion contacts. iGenie: you rub it and it will grant you three iWishes. iPhone, everything you'll ever need."

SNL isn't the only one out there making fun of iPhone hype. Check out this parody, too. There is even a parody for the non-existent ZunePhone.
