iPhone 5 hits the streets for review (but not in the way you think)

(CBS News) Every single time a new iPhone comes out, suddenly the current one seems a whole lot worse by comparison. But is that the truth of the matter or just a perception? Jimmy Kimmel Live hit the streets with a fun experiment that has some pretty hilarious results. Check it out.

Wow, this new iPhone is so much better! Lighter, faster, seemingly unbreakable, the pinnacle of technological achievement! I have to say, the best part of this experiment is that it really does shed some truth on the way we look at each iteration of the iPhone that comes out... but that still doesn't change the fact that your blogger here is going to be picking up the new iPhone 5 on September 21st. Okay, in my defense, I'm eligible for an upgrade and have the iPhone 4 (not 4S).
