    Man it would be fun writing an episode for this show and trying to work out how you could integrate mac messages into the storyline.

  3. A Ruse Seem Likeable Says:

    That video has an edited version of Apple’s 1984 at the end. Notice the runner/hammerthrow lady is wearing an iPod.

  4. Mark Says:

    Nice retcon of the iPod into the Apple ad! Made me do a double take. 🙂

    In “Fry and the slurmfactory” we see that Benders cpu has the same product number as the cpu in the first Apple 2: 6502.

  6. Epic Fail Says:

    This whole time I have been watching Futurama, I am never noticed that it was referring to Apple. Very good eye’s mister author.

  7. Futurama Episode Says:

    Wow, I didnt even notice this at all lol, Altough I havnt seen many episodes, I still wouldnt have picked up on this.

    Go mac!

  8. Television VOYEUR Says:

    Picked up on a few of those – didn’t notice the stock exchange one.

    Too bad Macs suck. Maybe Futurama wouldn’t have been canceled if it used Windows.

  10. Allie Says:

    Lol nice compilation. I loved the scene with the “Sorry, a system error occurred.”

  11. scott Says:

    Yeah, datdamonfoo. Futurama uses Windows. That makes sense.

  12. Neil Anderson Says:

    And drawing the Macs would be fun, too.

  13. Alex Says:

    “When the Mac freezes up, one of the character suggests in a bit of uber mac nerd humor, “Try control-alt-delete.””

    Which is a Windows command. Command-Option Escape is the Mac equivalent.

    Great piece. i’ve loved apple since my first game of pong! poor obama when he got to the white house and discovered all the pcs with 9 year old windows software! they couldn’t even get emails for two hours. this town needs a serious technology upgrade–all the cool stuff goes to the military.
