Actually talking into the watch predates the Simpsons by 12 years, Michael Knight talked into his watch as a communicator, mostly to summon or give commands to KITT on Knight Rider. Simpsons was naturally aware of the idea, given the times they`ve spoofed Knight Rider (Knight Boat; KITT in the TV museum) but they themselves didn`t predict it.

This is a good example of how you can take any written or spoken word, apply it to any situation and call it a prophecy. Remember to refer to this post the next time an "End of the World" prophecy comes around.

TV Evangelists have been worshiping money since they were RADIO evangelists... possibly before that too!
