Though The Simpsons has a history of satirizing tech culture, and even Apple specifically, last night's episode felt like it was making up for a bit of lost time. It's not just iPods and iMacs getting reprefixed and animated: it's Apple Stores, the G4 Cube, past and present fanboys, vintage advertising and even Steve Jobs himself. Even if Groening and co. aren't exactly breaking new ground here (though they seem to reserve some special venom for Mr. Jobs), there are more than a few great lines buried in the sketch.
