Touchscreen follies  OCT 27 2008

SNL's Fred Armisen shows off his interactive touchscreen skills on some political maps of the US.

Check out Michigan...I can make it bounce.

Nice commentary on TV news anchor busywork. See also Anderson Cooper's magic pie chart. (And sorry, Hulu = US viewers only.)

Update: For non-US viewers, here's an alternative link that includes the clip in question and a bunch of other stuff. And please don't yell at me for using Hulu...it's often the only alternative and it's relatively easy to watch outside of the US. (thx, nebel)
