    You do realize that he was not actually making a phone call, so the screen would have no reason to turn off. Plus, this is not the first time that the iPhone has been mis-represtened on Television.

    the point was, then and now, accuracy is not a priority.

    in the latest episode he is not actually really answering a call you know, he just pressed home and the screen light up, nothing more to see here ;)

    For the 2G episodes the phone is flipped to cover the apple logo, I like the Nickelodeon approach better, they just stamp a pear on top of it and be done w/ it...

    Kind of a misleading thread title. There's no proximity sensor issue in that video.

    Is not stupid, is a business and makes money for both parties usually; when they can't get into an agreement due to the product not wanting to be represented in X show or the show wants the products that appear to pay X amount or simply the show wants to keep it all in parody and can over-exaggerate features and unrealistic/fake programs to run in them, there are many reasons and none are stupid.

    I always thought it was because its trademarked by apple, therefore they are not aloud to use it. I could be wrong though.

    I know if I ever produced a show, I'd do it on purpose just for fun.

    Trademark, not copyright.

    Two and a Half Men is suchhhh a terrible show.
    And Charlie Sheen? Come on, that guy is such an awful person.
    Yet it's the #1 comedy and he's the highest paid TV actor?
    Come on, America!

    Oh sorry is that not what this thread is about?

    Two and a half men is the best show on TV. Hands down!!! As for Sheen, i dont have to deal with him so he isnt my problem. There are a lot of actors in Hollywood that are jerks that are worse than he is.

    A friend of mine who works at the Apple store told me someone once came in and said, "hey, I know you guys have these Apples, but ya'll got those pears like iCarly?". The employee had no response for him..

    Also, the question marked screenie above is Matt Saracen from Friday Night Lights.

    That was an excellent episode. Also, the Futurama uncensored Apple spoof episode was great.

    Correct. They are not actually receiving a call; they are just unlocking it or pressing the home button. Is it that hard to realize that?
