Video – Futurama's eyePhone mocks our gadget and social media obsession

Standing around, waiting in lengthy queues that go on for days and spiral around buildings for the latest gadget on the block... sound familiar? Of course it does. You only have to look at the pictures of eager punters insanely queuing outside Regent Street's Apple store the day *before* the iPhone 4 launch, to know a vast majority of the world have Apple fever. It essentially represented a microcosm of the world. There are fanboys everywhere. The Simpsons have already taken the mic out of the world's obsession with Apple and the god-like aura of Steve Jobs, so it's not surprising that Matt Groening and co have done it again in the latest episode of Futurama, which aired in the US last night. Brilliant. Warning: You might need to take a long hard look in the mirror at yourself when it's over.
