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.
So here’s where I spotted Apple On TV this week.
How I Met Your Mother - Apple was all over this week’s episode. I first spotted Barney receiving a text message on his iPhone 4. Curious was the extra large font and the absence of any carrier logo, although 3G could clearly been seen on the top status bar.
Next up was a Lilly’s 3Gs still clad in the white Agent18 Flower Vest case.
Finally an iPod Classic in a scene where Lilly was playing music for the baby she thought she was carrying (turns out she wasn’t pregnant). She meant to play some classical music for the child but somehow the iPod ended up on shuffle and the Beastie Boys. This turned into a short exchange between her and her husband Marshall over the baby listening to the Beastie Boys and what effect it might have.
NCIS LA - This week it was the iPad. The tablet, clad in the Griffin Technology Air Strap, was used at a crime scene to help reconstruct the events of a murder.
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.
