Walking through the library probably one in five laptops is a Macbook with the odd Macbook Pro. If you walk around outside though almost all the students sitting under a tree with their laptop is a Macbook user. Same with the coffee shops. ;)

Another university I visit has a similar number of 'visible' mac laptops.

University of Missouri's journalism school. J-school students at Mizzou are required to have laptops, and (as you can see) the majority choose Macs, partially because the campus bookstore gives students some pretty good deals.

OTOH, engineering students are also required to have laptops, and the vast majority choose Windows or Linux.

I'm guessing the cost of the laptop is part of their tuition fee (as the laptops are mandatory). So I guess you need to be rich to go to uni there in the first place :p

I take it they don't have "HECS" where you pay after you finish uni?

Nup - They do have student loans, which is like a bank, where you pay interest on that loan, but don't start paying it back until you finish class.

Scholarships are more prevalent, and families tend to have "college funds" where from when you're born, your parents might put in say, $50/week until you're 18. Where the account gains interest and builds up so they have enough money to pay for their kids to go to college.

We're quite lucky in Australia that the government gives students interest free loans to go to uni, but that also has it's downsides in regards to university funding etc.

In some countries, tertiary education is free. You just meet the entrance exam and away you go.

Not as such. They have financial aid instead, which is still money that must be repaid after you graduate, but it's loaned by private companies/banks instead. Accordingly it's not automatically deducted from your pay, nor does your income or lack thereof factor into whether you're expected to pay.

Of course, most people start saving for their kids to go to college as soon as they're born. And just as well, since one year at Mizzou is roughly $18k USD if you're not from Missouri (25% of students aren't) and US schools are four years at minimum.

Anyway, this is getting OT so I will spot a Mac - in the server room at work! (We have about 20-25 PowerMac G4 MDDs that run our internal websites and databases.)

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki at atomic live with 2 macbook pro's/powerbooks (unknown didn't get a good enough look) one as a backup when the other crashed.

One time I had to rig up a setup at my school where we was broadcasted to two other theatres just so most of the school could hear him talk. (complete nightmare!) I got to check out his setup whilst I was rigging it all up. He had two Powerbook G4's (17" I believe). The first one is the main unit that shows him his current slide and that is connected to the big screen where everyone can see it. The second one is just for him to see - it's one slide ahead to he can remember whats ahead. It also works as a backup unit. Brilliant idea.

The morning show 9AM on channel ten just had a very dodgy iPod/Speaker talk... the lady said that the nano didn't play video and referred to a green nano as a 160GB classic... They then docked them into various sound systems and only one of them actually worked - probably because of the non-existent "apple chip" in them. She pretty much spilled a load jumbled cr*p and told everyone to buy up. No mention of incompatibility or that while the touch can connect to the net you do need to still have wifi near by; she gave the impression that they would work with everything. It was quite sad to watch.. though watching that show in general is sad.

Not really spotting a mac, but just pointing out that I love the fact that in the show 24, all the bad guys use PC's (and end up dead), and all the good guys use Mac's (and end up winning).

That reminds me of a PC mag article recently, it was examining the claims of Apple and looking at which was the better system.
One of the arguments from the Mac side was that the TV good guys always used macs. At the time I thought it a silly argument and one that did not help the mac cause.

Mind you, now I am a convert, but there are a few programs (eg Stargate) that feature Dells.

The iPod touch made a very deliberate appearance on a current Japanese drama called Galileo (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Galileo).

http://tinyurl.com/2ojno9

The person using it stops what he was doing, takes white earbuds out of his ears, takes the iPod out of his pocket and looks down - and there's a clear shot of him stopping a movie and pressing the home button. I think they thought it just looked cool.

I don't know if this counts as Mac spotting, but the track Visions by Razed in Black starts with someone (assuming its Rommell from the band) dropping his keys, and then you can hear the boot chime :)

Yeah they are still around. I think they are more compliations/mixing than production oriented nowadays.

Track name is Visions from the Damaged album.

I just happened across their discography and heard the track. At the time I thought one of my Macs was rebooting.

Who do you think you are... not an actual Mac, but Julia Sawalha said that her distant relative (a Bedouin) wanted a copy of the program she was currently filming to see on his computer) to which she pondered "What would he have? ...Apple?"

Now that really is an obscure Mac Spot.

I finished watching a History Channel documentary a little while ago celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Trek called "Beyond The Final Frontier". In it, Mike & Denise Okuda, responsible for most of the graphic design in ST:TNG and beyond, had the mammoth task of sorting through Paramount's vast collection of props, costumes, sets and memorabilia for a giant Christies auction. Two obviously well loved titanium PowerBooks running FileMaker were used by the Okudas during cataloguing and for playback of ST episodes to confirm the appearance of each item in the auction.

(The 2-metre "hero" model of the Enterprise, NCC 1701-D, complete with electronics for the internal fibre-optics and nacelles, sold for US$500,000!)

I would like someone to confirm this please.

The new Rexona add starts with a group of Advert yuppies sitting around a table using what looks to me like a series of Macbooks and / or Macbook Pros, it's a bit hard to tell for sure, can see what appears to be an Apple logo on the lid of one.


As I said, can someone keep an eye out and confirm or reject my post.

Cheers.

I saw this a few nights ago and thought I should post it here.

I saw a 3 ad advertising the Nokia 6500 Slide, and when it showed the plans it had the distinctive but discontinued "brushed metal" look.

If you see the ad you'll know what I mean.

80 pages in this thread, so excuse if it's been mentioned before but

About four to five years a go on Foxtel/Austars ChannelV request show they had an iMac probably 19 inch or 21inch screen on the desk with iTunes Visuals running all the time which the host would be standing next to blabbering on while swinging the stem around. Would of been a buzz for the age group they had as an audience ;)

From Newsweek:


“ Onstage, Obama has introduced Michelle as “my rock”—the person who keeps him focused and grounded. In her words, she is just making sure he is “keeping it real.”…She insists that Barack fly home from wherever he is to attend ballet recitals and parent-teacher conferences. When the couple host political gatherings at their home in Chicago’s Hyde Park, Michelle asks everyone to bring along their children. To help bridge the physical distance between father and daughters, Michelle recently bought two MacBook laptops, one for Barack and one for the kids, so they could have video chats over the Internet. Last Thursday, she cleared his schedule so he could return home to Chicago and spend Valentine’s Day with her and the girls."


I wonder if he bought black ones, white ones, or a mixture.

Doesn't really bother me when it comes out here, will just make it easier to buy when a 3G version comes and will also have a warranty which will be good. I will still be hacking it for use with Virgin, that's for sure.

Speaking of iPhones, Adam was using his heaps on Mythbusters tonight, seems to carry it with him everywhere clipped to his belt. He also now drives a Segway around everywhere - cool!

Currently a couple on the BBC (technology) news website, mainly on stories of 'Computer Security Issues'. The images are a bit blurred up, but they are clearly MacBook Pro, from the thickness of the screen, hinge design and the size of the F-Keys. They've just started reporting on something that was posted in the forum about a month ago, in where the memory could be 'stabilised' by reducing the temperature of it.

If anyone has seen the Kylie Minogue documentary White Diamond, theres MBP's all over the place. Kylie has a white Maacbook and uses it continuously to play tunes, also a fairly long session when she jokes/plays around with photobooth.

Yeah, I know. I could blame the wife 'n' all that, but I didn't have to watch it - flak jacket is on.:p

I came in to post this. There is also a scene in the production room in Sydney and it is full of Macs. In fact all computers seen in the doco are Macs. Not a good thing when they are going on about the computers melting down and fucking up the acoustics causing everyone to be out of tune.

I love the bit with Kylie playing with photobooth.
