    There was a post on here somewhere about how TV shows using Macs on their shows like the cube and flat screen on Drew Carey's desk.
    I was watching Alias on ABC this past Sunday and Jennifer Garner's character was hacking into the fiber optic network of a casino and her laptop was a titanium running OSX. The screen was the Terminal program but you could see the blue OSX apple and menu at the top.
    It was refreshing to see that pc's don't rule the world....well at least not on TV.

    See....I'm unemployed right now so I wind up noticing things like that with all of my free time.

    I do the same thing constantly. I especially try to pick them out in commercials!
    Heck, I even saw a Mac tower on Dagwood's desk in last Sunday's "Blondie"!

    ****, I can spot a Mac in 45 frames or less.

    I only need 1/4 of it visible and I can usually tell year and model.Scary isn't it.;)

    Sex in the City involves a Powerbook G3
    Home Improvement sometimes involves an older powerbook
    The Australian guy with an accent and a know-it-all on snakes and crocodiles has a Titanium G4
    The guy in the beginning of one of the Verizon commercials uses a TiG4.

    Yes, I am happy to see Macs popping up all over on TV. On Apple's website a long while ago they said that Apple held 5% of all computer users. I wouldn't be surprised to see that go up to 10%.

    On tv

    I saw a Lime Green iBook on VIP, and it was being displayed proudly. I guess Pamela is a Mac women. Also on CNN they were talking about big CEOs and when they showed the Chairman of AOL/TimeWarner he had a TIBOOK!! I guess I have to like AOL a little because of that.
