    Woody Allen's new movie - "Hollywood Ending" (hilarious, by the way)

    A few clamshell iBooks
    One G3 indigo iMac
    One TiBook

    My date thought I was insane. :)

    I don't know if any of you watch "6 feet under" on HBO, brenda uses a TiBook... its a good show so it's nice to see a familiar computer :)

    you see 'em in a lot of movies lately, our cable company even uses Macs in their high-speed cable ads...

    My favorit mac sighting is a little old, but still a good one.

    Seinfeld had a 20th anniversary mac on his desk by the window in his appartment. I never actually saw the thing working though, but it was a very cool, if somewhat overpriced machine in its time.

    Clockstoppers was chock full of Macs and Cinema Displays. And of course Zoolander…:D Who could forget Independence Day— Goldblum saves the world by giving the aliens a virus on his Mac (probably gave them Windows!)

    I pick out macs ALL the time in movies. It's so fun. I even think in Fight Club, after he beats himself up in front of his boss, when he's wheeling out his stuff, there's a beige Mac extended keyboard in his cart.

    Almost forgot…Antitrust. Hacking on B&W G3's. And Office Space, a weird mix of Mac and Windows.

    You stole mine! damn! After reading the first post I thought about the 20th anniversary mac on Seinfeld and I was gonna mention it....oh well.

    They also had an iMac and a G3 tower in Seinfeld's apt.

    Theres also a Simpsons episode I saw last week I believe...where Bart creates an online cartoon about homer...well anyway, they create the cartoons on a G4 tower....I was watching with my roomates and I was all excited about the mac...whatdya expect?

    TMF, a MTV clone in the Netherlands, had their music awards last month. Well, this station s*cks but at the music awards they clicked on the mouse of an iMac to announce the winner wich was showed on a big screen. I bet Apple paid a lot of money, but it was cool, hehehe.

    I saw on a "Funniest Videos" show (forgot the name) they had about 50 iMacs just displaying their logo in the background. It was actually rather insane.

    Australian sightings

    A UNIQUELY AUSTRALIAN PERSPECTIVE
    There used to be an iBook on Rove's desk on Rove[Live] and Bob Downe uses heaps of iBooks on The Bob Downe Show.
    BTW completely unrelated, I just saw Panic Room and the way they do the credits at the begining of that movie is quite insane.
    Say hi to your mum for me,
    Tim.

    Re: Australian sightings

    Yeah, those were very striking. The CG made them look very real, with the reflections, shadows and all. Sort of creepy omnipresent sterile floating letters, went very well with the movie's theme to start it off.

    Spiderman's credits were stuck to cool CG webs in the beginning too. That whole movie was awesome CG.

    I saw the previews for Scooby Doo. The movie looks stupid, but she's going to be the hot blonde. Might go watch it for that.

    And yet anothe intellectual post from mac15.

    Has anyone mentioned sex in the city? They've had a few on that, and it should be interesting to see if they upgrade Sarah Jessica Parker's pismo with a TiPB in the new season.
