Earlier this week Apple announced that it will use robots to help build the iPhone 6, which in terms of both technology and the future of labor and jobs is a pretty big deal.

Conan, however, is unimpressed. His office is already staffed with robots. In fact, they make up 50 percent of the office, Conan jokingly explains.
