3D Remake of Warner Bros. Loony Tunes Frog

When Money Attacks... 3D frogs.

This is a 3D remake of the old Warner Brothers Loony Tunes cartoon starring their frog. It is the first two minutes of that cartoon, "One Froggy Evening." That is why you'll often see this frog on some Warner Bros. branding.

You'll also realize that the Space Balls gag near the end was a combination of this joke and of the scene from Alien (and each following sequel) where a baby alien bursts out of a guy's chest.

Apple's iPhone

When Money Attacks... Phones.

From Wikipedia: (

The iPhone is a smartphone and multimedia player device announced by Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs during the keynote address at the Macworld Conference & Expo on January 9, 2007. The iPhone will support push IMAP from Yahoo!, mobile telephony, text messaging, web browsing, and other wireless information services.

The iPhone, unlike most smartphones, will not include a built-in keyboard or keypad; input is accomplished via a combination of technologies, including a touchscreen with software virtual keyboard and buttons. Apple has confirmed an optimized but limited version of the OS X operating system will run on the iPhone, but further distinction between the operating system (OS X) running on Macs and iPhones has not been officially explained. Third party applications are currently limited to a "controlled environment".

The iPhone has a scheduled release date of June 2007, pending Federal Communications Commission approval, and will be available from the Apple Store and via Cingular. iPhone has a planned launch price of US$499 for the 4 GB model and $599 for the 8 GB model, based on a two year service contract. The iPhone is a quad-band GSM phone, though Jobs mentioned in his keynote that Apple has a "plan to make 3G phones" in the future. Apple has filed over 200 patents related to the technology behind the iPhone.

Apple's choice of the name has resulted in some controversy as Cisco Systems has asserted that they own the trademark to the name "iPhone". Cisco sells a line of Voice over IP telephones called "iPhone" under their Linksys brand.

Here is a fun joke on this announcement from Saturday Night Live star Fred Armisen:

And here it is as a fake commercial on Conan (note that Conan shares writers and producers with Saturday Night Live):

...And Mad TV gets a little bizarre:


Pandora - Free Online Music

When Money Attacks... Online Music.

The Music Genome Project has created Pandora. It is an online radio. But this radio is unique because you are able to customize your radio station by adding music you do like, and subtract music you don't like. Each time you adjust that radio station, it adapts and and only plays songs similar to the ones that you do like.

Eventually, your music will only be songs that you like. I'm guilty for having a Britney Spears and Alanis Morisette radio stations.
