'Futurama' returns...for one 'Simpsons' episode

Listen up, meatbags. Bender and his "Futurama" friends are coming back for a special "Simpsons" crossover this fall.

Finally, our nerdy cartoon dreams are coming true. While it's not the full-fledged comeback that fans have hoped for, the cast and characters of "Futurama" are returning to Fox this November for one episode of "The Simpsons" titled "Simpsorama."

"Simpsons" producer Al Jean announced the collaboration during a panel at the Television Critics Association on Sunday, TheWrap reports. All the main characters from "Futurama" will be included: Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Maurice LaMarche, Phil LaMarr, Lauren Tom, and Tress MacNeille have reportedly all committed to the project. This will be the team's first appearance since "Futurama" ended its series run last September.

Matt Groening, who created both "The Simpsons" and "Futurama," has indicated that he wants to get "Futurama" picked up by another network after Comedy Central decided not to renew the series for an eighth season. Perhaps a crossover episode will give that mission the push it needs to bring the world of New New York back to our TVs.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
