Don't Believe Me? Bing It!

It’s not like you could possibly miss it, but if you were watching  last night’s Hawaii Five-0 episode, then you likely saw the scene where … oh heck, just watch!

Chin Ho Kelly challenges Kono Kalakaua to perform the search while they are looking at a sculpture, when she reaches into her bag and pulls out the LG Optimus 7 — the first time I have seen one in the wild, even if only on TV.

Larry has pointed out Apple’s movie and television product placements, and it looks like Microsoft is taking a page from their book; the one which says: if you place it, people will notice. If they notice it, they will recognize it. If they recognize it, they will buy it.

Is it working? Did you buy a Windows Phone 7 today?

I went into the San Angelo AT&T store to fondle the HTC Surround and the Samsung Focus. They are nice, but the phone I am about to purchase is the T-Mobile HD7. I am testing one out right now, and I like it the best of the three I’ve seen in real life. 🙂

About the Author

Judie Lipsett Stanford
I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
