They also use iPod touches as phone which is a little silly.

cool

They also always show Up on Eureka (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/19/46-mac-spotting-29.html#post605680) And I think I've also seen them on Stargate Universe

Lie To Me episode last night had a brand spanking new iMac. You only saw the back of it.

That's what I thought at first glance to


Wrong. That was a 24 inch LCD. It had two cables and USB ports only.

But it is definitely a 24 inch LCD Display. In previous episodes there was a iMac their

normal business. if the phone isn't "on" then people will presume it's a fake call. Remember, only 16% of the mobile phone using market in the US use an iPhone, so they don't know it turns off when you hold it to your lug hole.

Did anyone see what sort of Mac the Whitehouse media lady was using.....on the National Geographic Obama show tonight?

I just caught a glimpse, and it looked like an Apple Display, and it was a bit quick for me to try and spot what was driving it....a Mac Pro no doubt

80,000 photos a month, and probably video as well.....

They've gone back to using Sony devices in later games though (Walkman in MGS Peace Walker)

Hawaii Five-0 has a combo of iPad's, iPhones, MBPs, Windows Surface/Win 7 and WP7. Hilariously, they had Windows 7 on the iPad once.

Just remembered this thread.
A few months back my daughter and I were watching an Inspector Rex repeat ( probably a repeat of a repeat of a repeat but I digress ) and the bad guy broke into a hotel room to get at the incriminating info on a guys computer ( a venerable Powerbook 3400 I think ). Rather than wipe the hard drive , he puts it into the vanity basin and turns the tap on !
Oooooohhh nooooo , not the 3400 !!!!!
I told you he was a bad guy.

a rather large bank has switched laptop hardware purchasing to the MacBook Air as their preferred device, running XP, though migrating to 7. previously Dell Latitudes.
That's ~10s of thousands of Airs shipping each year.
