This has been bugging me for a while. I started noticing about 2 years ago that in 99% of all movies, tv shows, and commercials EVERY time you see someone on a computer they are on an Imac or Ibook. Why is this? If you were to base your perception of Apples share of the PC marketplace solely on what you see in media you would think that Imacs were the only comps people used and only a few “geeks” used windows machines.
Does Apple spend massive amounts of cash on product placement in movies and television? If so, the money may be better spent trying to make computers that are just as easy to use as they are to look at.
(I’m serious. If you haven’t noticed this trend start paying attention to computers in movies when you watch them. The only place you won’t see them is when they show the inside of Norad or something like that)
