    Yes I know, it's another one of those 'mac sightings' threads :D :rolleyes: :p

    But what the hey...

    The christmas special of Absolutely Fabulous (big comedy series in the UK) is just on TV and in the kitchen where they used to have a cube and a 15" studio they now have a nice FP iMac.
    Also the other night on the BBC's 'Test the Nation 2002' the people in the studio checking e-mails etc all had 17" FP iMacs too!
    I also just downloaded Goldmember this afternoon ( ;) ) and watched it for the first time, and in it (this has probably been mentioned before, sorry) Austin uses a TiBook! :D GROOOOVY!

    Anyone spotted anymore recently?

    Re: More Mac Sightings...



    If you look closely, in the lab where Austin is in the car, there is a whole rack full of G4 towers... you can see it pretty well if you see the part where Austin is talking to Basil... in the window next to Basil are the towers.... when I first spotted them, I thought 'shweeeeeet :D'

    Actually I thought Austin used a powerbook, but I could be wrong.

    As a student at a recording school, I always notice how prominently Macs are featured in Pro Audio magazines. The greatest place to look for them in print would have to be music gear advertisements.

    OK now don't flame me or anything, but on the tv show Fastlane Tiffani Theissen's character has an iMac at her desktop that is always being used be her.

    All of the WB shows that have a shot with a computer in it are Macs, the WB I believe has some sort of contract with Apple over it.

    You never know, not many people think Fastlane is quality tv. I enjoy it for what it is though...

    Oh right, I didn't know you were talking about the show, I have no idea what it is living in the UK, but if it's got Tiffani Thiessen in it can't can't be all bad ;) :D

    Happy New Years, By the way....

    Did you notice that VH1 uses macs for all of their TV ads featuring their internet site? They dont show the computer, but when they click on stuff, the black and white spinning thing come up.

    Also (and I'm ashamed to say I know this) they use them on Lifetime TV commercials. A lady is sitting at her iBook, clicking on a giant LIFETIMETV.COM thing in the middle of her screen.

    One more... In the new Sum 41 video, the manager guy is using a TiBook, but they have obscured the apple logo to be a circle.

    (by the way, I would have to say that this is one of the cool things about owning a mac. Do you think people with a compaq even notice or care when they see one? I totally dig this!)

    Gateway ad with Powerbook

    MacNN reports that the latest issue of PC Magazine contains an advertisement for Gateway, which features an Apple PowerBook G4 being used to listen to music in an advertisement titled "Shoot, Edit, or Jam."

    Normally, in Motor Trend magazine if they have an as for their website the screenshot will almost always be the website viewed using IE in OS9.

    In TLC's (The TV channel) ad for their website they are always using a mac with a black promouse, aftermarket keyboard, and a apple flatpanel display.

    Every time there is a Laptop in use on The Agency(the show about the CIA) It's usually a TiBook. I did notice recently that their workstations went from SGI to Dell.
