Was it really only yesterday that we watched with muted glee as Apple fanboys everywhere lost their shit over a phone that is only mildly different from its now much cheaper predecessor? My, how time flies.

The iPhone 5 is slightly lighter and slightly longer than the iPhone 4s, but apparently even Apple fans can’t really discern the difference. Jimmy Kimmel brought an iPhone 4s out on the streets of Los Angeles and told everyone he encountered that it was an iPhone 5.

“Oh, it’s way better!” proclaimed a man in a Dave Matthews Band hat. “I only have the 4s,” he admitted, not realizing that it’s the same damn phone.¬†You can’t make this shit up, people.
