Apple While it wasn't a very important link in the story about the iPhone 4's antenna issue, we did link to an article over at Boy Genius Report which supposedly contained emails coming from Steve Jobs. Apple has told Fortune and Engadget that these emails are, in fact, not from Steve Jobs. Apple claims they're fake. Also, on a funnier note, I'm assuming all of you have already seen last night's brand new Futurama episode in which they make some serious fun of Apple, Google, the iPhone, and its fans?

(in the not so distant future)

Apple has just purchased Futurama

...On the next Futurama: All the characters take turns talking about how amazing Steve Job is...

Steve Jobs replaces Mom in the show

Steve jobs replaces all the characters in the show (except Nibbler who will be played by Tux the penguin)

Futurama has been renamed to Jobs 'O Rama

Apple kills futurama

(very distant future)

Futurama returns again...?

(0) Apple get too large piece of the OS X market (or rather it's too small in the first place) themselves rendering third-party developers not focusing on the platform single handily since there's no profit or chance for them.)

1) Apple appreciate Futurama as a good but not the best TV-show enjoyable on both macs and Windows.
2) Apple buys Futurama.
3) Apple make Futurama only enjoyable on macs.
4) Apple make Futurama as good or better than all other shows viewable on macs.
5) Apple hope having Futurama on macs only will be a good reason enough for Windows users to become switchers.

(6) Most other third-party cross-platform shows end up losing their mac viewers and all mac only shows stop producing new material.)

It certainly looks as if Apple owned Futurama:
