The Simpsons' Mr. Burns Webcam - “Excellent...”

Anyone who is a fan of The Simpsons, has got to get themselves one of these Mr. Burns USB webcams. Yeah...it is just basically a regular old webcam...so why would anyone want it...because it's a Mr Burns webcam!

I probably sound a little redundant, but the truth is that the real fans of The Simpsons would love to have one of these novelty webcams - not because it's a good-quality webcam, but because it resembles the evil boss of the employees at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. I'm a big fan of The Simpsons myself, so I was excited when I saw this webcam - call me crazy if you want, but I know that I'm not the only one out there!

The webcam is all that bad, in terms of functionality, either. It will capture video at 30 frames per second at a resolution of 640 by 480 pixels. It also has a built-in microphone to capture sound, and it can be used with Skype, MSN Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger and AOL messenger. It included a clip to attach it to a flat-panel monitor, and it connects to a Windows-based computer via USB. Overall, it's not all that bad.
