100 Watt Walrus: Well, first of all, Apple may be more aggressive with their product placement campaigns.
100 Watt Walrus: When you see an Apple laptop, you think "Apple."
DjangoStonereaver: Bullseyed: Bullseyed: I haven't seen House of Cards, but the article reminded me of Big Bang Theory. They are always using iPhones and usually have some kind of Dell laptops. No engineer or physicist with a brain would be using a non-Android device.Let me clarify that: a non-Android phone or a Dell computer.Considering Dell's penetration (heh heh... I said 'penetration') of the Enterprise market, their use of DellPCs could be excused by assuming they were purchased by the University. I also realize that mostUniversity professors have a great deal of latitude in their purchasing, but there is such a thing assuspension of disbelief.
FlashHarry: Bullseyed: Do you own 3 iPhones for your own personal use and still have a Blackberry as a fourth phone? Pretty sure that is what the author was objecting to.uh, no. that would be farking stupid.

MrBigglesworth: I saw the first episode last night, I saw Zoey use an iPhone, is that wrong? Is that too much? Is it too much to believe that some people in the acting world and on screen would use an iPhone in todays day and age?
TeDDD: DjangoStonereaver: That had to have been from the first season.WHITE COLLAR also has fairly obvious product placement with Ford cars.Is USA Network bad for that in general? Burn Notice often has fairly blatant vehicle placement, to the point where Michael Weston's "How to Be a Spy" voiceover exposition actually turned into a commercial during one episode."When you're trying to get away during a fast chase, you need tight handling and precise control, like what is featured in the new BrakeSmart (tm) Technology, found on a car like Our Sponsor's New Model."
Kinek: Nobody should ever be using more than one device. Now excuse me while I move my Kindle Fire, Laptop, Dual monitor set-up, projector, and phone and go get a drink of water to wet my whistle and continue my outrage on multitasking.

GameSprocket: Amateurs! Eureka showed up how to do product placement:[www.istartedsomething.com image 500x282] I would have thought the more blatant Apple place happened on House. What are the odds that all those medical scanners are operated by Macs?
