    I just saw a PowerBook in an episode of Monarch of the Glen tonight.

    Lately, I see just as many instances of Dell computers, though, especially during the local news. They were showing FEMA tonight concerning the tornadoes and there were Dell laptop computers.

    Well, considering Al Gore is on the Board of Apple it would have been heresy for him to use a PC. ;)

    Unfortunately there is a flip-side as well. Example, when you go to today's BBC frontpage http://www.bbc.co.uk/ — UK Version (not international) — the pic illustrating "Safer Internet Day" has a guy using a MacBook Pro — but the Apple logo is airbrushed out… just another faceless PC. Of course you can't hide the elegant lines… but I hate it when they do that.

    i spotted a MBP/PB on Neighbors; it was recognizable by a silver case an a hint of a white glow coming from the back... sexy...

    i also spotted a Mac Pro at the sound desk of an afi gig i went to recently, and a MacBook Pro at an Eric Clapton gig.

    I've noticed that whenever the newspaper from where I live has anything about the internet in an article the picture with it usually is from a Mac program.

    They are invading us everywhere. President Palmer on 24 used one, CTU has them everywhere (along with a few Dells) and I am pretty sure NCIS has some.

    Or it's called actually using the computer and it just happens to be a Mac because they like it.

    Or are you referring to the television shows? :eek:

    price is right has been using macs as prizes lately. before the intel switch, i don't remember them giving out macs as prizes. they were always dells or hp's (they only do american companies, so no sony, toshiba, acer or any of the foreigners). i saw a macbook, one power mac and a few imacs, most recently today (she didn't win it though).

    I took my niece on a video shoot she was doing for the Phoenix Metro Bus (local bus company), and at one point in the video she was supposed to be on the internet so the director just pulled out his 17" MBP and gave it to my niece to use for the shot. I would have been nervous handing my $3,000+ machine over to a 12 year old, but he didn't seem to mind.

    The oldest Apple product placement I've noticed was an ad for the Apple II on the back of a newspaper in the 1983 movie "Trading Places."

    Sorry, but we no longer permit these "Mac sighting" threads. There are enough Macs in media these days that the thread will become "write-only" - one that accumulates posts without being of much interest to most forum readers.
