Matt Groening the creator of the most famous cartoons The Simpsons is a self confessed anarchist. He has himself admitted that he wanted to get his own political ideas across within his own work but he wanted to do it in such a way that people find it easy to accept his ideas & the means he chose for this was the cartoon "The Simpsons".
The comedic target of this week's episode was Apple's infamous iPhone. In Futurama, it's the "eyePhone" (as it's actually lodged into your eye) and it's brought to us by MomCorp.
At first it seemed her only plan was to use the eyePhone for information gathering and direct marketing sales. I must say I was floored by her past failed attempt at information gathering; the hysterical Infosquitos.
Of course, Mom couldn't stop at mass marketing sales pitches, and she upped the ante with an army of zombies. That it turned out to be a comment on how Apple is creating iPhone loving zombies made it all the better.
