Apple stuff all over Californication. ie. Cinema display in the agents office for one. Daughter always has her ipod. ex-girlfriend has MBP.
Season one even saw Hank go into an Apple store to write his blog on a MBP, after literaly throwing his Windows laptop across the room. Then buys a black Macbook.

It's a Pismo, it had an upside down logo when the lid was open. So did the original clamshell iMac. When the TiBook was announced, Steve made a big deal about how the Apple logo finally appeared right-side-up.

I guess the reason they were upside down originally is because when the laptop was closed, the logo was right-side up.

There's a Macbook/Powerbook in the new batch of SMH online bus-stop ads that have just started going up around the Sydney CBD. Weird thing is, instead of just airbrushing out the Apple logo as is the norm with these things, they've turned it into a circle?

http://img.skitch.com/20081030-mhrrcq1tg7jhhm434w52mjim3h.jpg

Looks a bit Dell-ish I think. And since it's not lit up, I guess the machine's not even on! Great way to advertise online news, guys.

Why airbrush the logo out, anyway?

1. Because leaving it in is costs Apple $ that they obviously haven't paid
(it's advertising Apple as well if the logo is visible).

2. Apple are a *very* high profile company and it may attract peoples attention towards the laptop and away from the message the advert is trying to 'sell'.

its the ad for dodo wireless internet and its so damn cheesy they spent probably $5 making it. basically its a mbp that's been reversed in photoshop so not only is the superdrive on the otherside but u can CLEARLY see the MacBook Pro writing backwards on the screen! LAME.

also, the sydney morning herald ads around town (sydney obviously) the guy is using one at his desk but they made the apple logo just a white circle instead!

similar for some crappy jessica simpson movie i saw the cover of in the video shop but her mbp was... PINK. kill me now.

A lot of the computers in recent South Park seasons use Mac look-a-likes. In the episode Over Logging there are plenty of references to Apple - Stan uses Safari, his sister, Shelley has a boyfriend who she iChats with and after they realise there's no internet at Starbucks, Randy suggests checking the "Mac store" for internet.

was pushing the trolley around our local Woolworths grocery supermarket today (= Safeway for Vics) and saw an end of aisle display of flatpacked "computer desks" for "back to school"

The simplest has a pic of G4 Power Mac with looks like a 15" cinema display on its box (with Apple logos clearly visible)!,
& the corner desk has a G5 Power Mac with a larger screen (but with logos somehow disappeared)

just have to convince the manager to also stock the hardware too!

I'm not sure if you realise this but they must be referring to McIntosh apples (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McIntosh_(apple)), the fruit, not Apple Macintosh, the computer. Get Smart ran from 1965 till 1970, well before Apple let alone the Macintosh.

Loads of iMacs in the new Sandra Bullock movie:

Apple - Trailers - The Proposal (http://www.apple.com/trailers/touchstone/theproposal/)

Sandra's a producer and she's been using Macs at least since 'The Net', so she's in a position to specify computers and do deals with companies for product placement.

If the logo is shown, it's likely a product placement deal has been done. If the company doesn't cough up the $, filmmakers usually hide the logo. They could show it and give free advertising, but that's not how you fund your film...

for example: even though they had an iPhone specific joke in 'Sex and the City', the actor's fingers were always over the logo. The joke was unflattering and Apple must have decided not to pay.

First Mac is a G3 iBook (turquoise)

Second Mac (and only on technicality - Justin Long (camp as a row of pink sparkly tents)

Third (okay it's not a Mac) iPhone as used by Justin Long

Fourth While editing the movie they are doing so on at least one 30' Cinema display, but I think it was 2.

The film is funny and painful and brilliant. Though not one to watch with the kids in the room, or the folks for that matter! A brilliant Kevin Smith film.

Oh will you please just cut your bloody pommy shit out. I've had it up to - with midgets and your getting on my bloody tits!!

He's a twit because he's been caught out by the press using a non sponsored product, cut out being an arse hole and giving poor bastards that moved out here from the UK a bad name.

And I never insinuated you did, what ever I was asked to put into my pipe by the previous poster from Wait Awhile, obviously i need to get some from them.

I was merely pointing out, that whilst some don't see Beckham as a Brand, it's in the top 3. Yeah he got caught, but then again, does it say in his contract that he has to use one?

I contributed to the discussion, but i didn't go out to insult the poster. The post made in reply to mine choose to attempt to insult me, due to what they thought was my nationality, then suggested I continue to smoke the 'funny stuff'.
Tell me, is that normal forum discussion? Like I said, if you don't like what someone say's, you have a choice, and one of which, is don't contribute. Insulting people is on this forum, non negotiable, from what i've read.

The new Datarock album Red's first track is called 'The Blog', it's mostly audio grabs about Myspace and other social networking sites. But at the very end, it has what seems to be out of a news report on the iTunes Music Store, then the audio from a 1984 speech by Bill Gates:


To create a new standard, it takes something that's not just a little bit different; it takes something that's really new and really captures people's imagination — and the Macintosh, of all the machines I've ever seen, is the only one that meets that standard.

I think that counts as a Mac spot, yeah?

The one Dell laptop in the movie was running iTunes! I wanted to smash that iPhone by the end of the film with its stupid bongo drum ringtone going off every five minutes.

Does Apple pay these assholes to promote their products, or do set designers really love Apple that much?

The rumour is that Apple provide hardware at little to no cost to film productions unlike almost all of the PC vendors who didn't catch on to the idea until it was too late. Of course these days product placement is huge - but in a number of shows / movies it's clear that Apple are popular with some companies.

Actually, from what I've heard, its quite the opposite.

Apple are pretty strict on which programs can actually show their logo.

Production designers just like using Apple products because they look good on screen.

Generally, they have to cover up the logo with a sticker/post-it note or put another conveniently placed object in front of it, just enough to obscure the actual Apple logo.

It's one thing for a production to use Apple products, its another for them to actually show the logo.

When you see the logo, then it's likely they've been given promotional considerations from Apple.
