    Just caught that new show John Doe last night, and the main character, who is apparently super intelligent and knows just about everything, uses an iMac. Just thought that was kinda neat.

    well of course he uses macs. he knows everything, so surely he knows better than to use wondoze or any other micro$uck software.

    All this is nice...but look at other shows. In Smallville Lex Luther uses a ti pb, the newspaper department Cloe uses the original iMac. In Girlfriends, iBooks and iMacs are used. In Dark Angel, that one guy uses a tibook.

    My point is, most of the tv shows have macs...since macs are the computer of choice for graphics and the entertainment buisness...therefore macs are used more than they really are...up to a third of tv shows have macs in them.

    But its cool that a mac is in John Doe. :)

    Watch HBO. Nearly every show produced by HBO uses Macs. On "Sex And The City" Carrie uses a PowerBook. On "The Mind Of The Married Man" Mickey uses a TiPBook. It's great publicity for Apple, and it really shows that the industry supports the platform.

    Ok, I'm confused. Did they remake the twilight zone or are you on crack? If they remade it then cool, but I haven't heard anything like that.

    Could it be that Apple promote themselves using product placement in popular TV shows ?

    seems the most obvious conclusion from all those obviously zoomed in shots of willow in Buffy The Vampire Slayer using her iBook with the apple logo in full shot for 30 seconds, Logan in Dark Angel with his cube and 22" Cinema Display in full view every time he broadcasts (that I've seen).
