In der gestern gezeigten, neuesten Folge von Futurama ging’s um Twitter, Facebook, Apple und das iPhone. Oben ein Fake-Commercial daraus, auf Viddler gibt’s noch einen (längeren) Ausschnitt und die Folge ist natürlich irgendwo in diesem Internetz zu haben, wenn man danach sucht (ja, sie läuft grade eben im Hintergrund und sie ist ein einziger Twitter-AugmentedReality-iPhone-Online-Nerdgasm) und das Bild oben gibt’s hier als Wallpaper. Hier der Plot von Wikipedia:

An unflattering video of Leela makes the rounds online, thanks to Fry. The episode features what ends up of Facebook, iPod, iPhone and Twitter in the future, now under the corporate control of Mom.

Mainly, the episode focuses on the new phone released by Mom, the eyePhone. Throughout the episode, numerous references are made to the iPhone and the numerous memes surrounding it, examples include a character saying “there’s an app for that”, and a sequence where Leela and Fry realize that it is also a phone, which they had not noticed, due to its immense amount of apps. The main plot of the episode is Mom’s attempt to take over the world, through a network of short status updates, a reference to Twitter, by using targeted ads.
