Apple to Ellen: We Are Not Amused

The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Touchy, touchy.

Comedienne Ellen DeGeneres offered an apology to Apple after she received a scolding from the company for doing a send up of the company's iPhone commercials.

In the spoof, DeGeneres can be heard doing a voice-over extolling how much the iPhone does - as she clicks haplessly around the screen and winds up accidentally sending a message.

"They thought that I made it look like the iPhone was hard to use," she said on her show. "It's not hard to use...I love it. I love my iPad. I love my iPod. I love iHop."
