What if Steve Jobs Was a Simpsons Character?
I couldn’t help but to roll on the floor laughing when I saw these Simpson videos. A few you of your know that I worked at Apple in their retail store in Los Angeles so pretty much everything little detail has been analyzed and mocked in these two videos. Awesome! Choice quote...
