Like any good admitted fanboy, I often find myself looking for Apple products on TV. Lately I’ve been spotting more and more iDevices popping up on many of the shows I watch. So I’ve decided to start a new weekly segment entitled “Apple On TV.” The premise is simple. Whenever I spot an Apple product in one of the shows I watch (and I watch a lot of TV), I’ll take a screen shot of it and post it here, in a weekly recap, with a short description. But I need your help too! Although I watch a lot of TV I don’t watch everything. So if you come across an Apple product in one of the shows you’re watching, feel free to grab a screen shot (use your iPhone camera) and send it to me, at email@example.com. Be sure to include the name of the show and a short sentence on what was happening in the scene, and I’ll include it in that week’s post.
Due to the Thanksgiving holiday here in the U.S. it was a quiet week for new TV.
So here’s where I spotted Apple On TV this week.
House – This week the Mac was back on House. In the first screen shot Dr. Taub gets caught trying to snoop in his wife’s Mac Book Pro. He’d suspected her of having an affair and was looking for evidence.
Later, while a patient was having an MRI an Apple wired keyboard and mouse was clearly visible along with an Apple monitor.
Finally on the desk of the hospital’s head-honcho, Dr, Lisa Cuddy, the ever familiar glow of the Apple logo on a Mac Book Pro.
Hawaii 5-0 - On this week’s episode Steve used his iPhone 4 to snap a photograph of a fingerprint. He then sent it back to 5-0′s headquarters for analysis.
Remember, if you see an Apple product on TV grab a screen shot and send it to me at Larry@geardiary.com, and I’ll use it in next week’s post.
