    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).

    the photoshoping out of the apple logo in such circumstances just shows the arrogance and attitude of bigpond

    I'm fairly sure that it's just a stock photo, so it would have been whoever sold telstra the stock images that did the editing. I wouldn't call it arrogant either, i see it more as a sign of being ashamed that they use inferior products.

    Well, after watching 11 episodes into 24 season 3, this is a bit different now... I haven't seen the other 2 so I can't comment on them. Firstly, CTU now has G5s, 23" Apple Displays with iSight as their standard equipment. Jack Bauer is using the 17" powerbook as well. Greedy bastard!!

    Anyhow, without revealing too many details about season 3 for those who ware simply waiting for it to be shown on the telly, Michelle uses a Dell laptop, and others as well. So far no sighting of an iPod but you never know

    Yesterday I went to see the Return of the King (yes finally!!! due to the high demand of gold class I had to wait this long!&#33. Anyhow, as it was the first time to sit in gold class, I decided to stay till the very end of the credits, and to my surprise, there was a nice big Apple logo at the end.... I think it was Shake that they used.

    I'm almost ashamed to say I watched it, but the first 30 seconds of the music video 50 Cent: In Da Club is a blantant ad for the iPod. They must have paid the dude out big time for it

    maybe... but i don't think so.

    i reckon they like the bling bling factor of the iPods. just like all their other stuff, they like to show off that they have the best of the best.
    I'd rather be posting from an Apple //c

    I don't know if this counts, but I saw this today at the link below, and thought it was pretty cool.

    All I can say is they must have better roads in Europe.
