They had an iMac in the senior lounge on the TV show "Boston Public". The first thing my son asked was "Is that the computer you are thinking of getting?" When I said "Maybe" he replied "Cool!". Coming from a 16 year old with an attitude, that is a compliment. Such is Life.

I've noticed more and more Macs in movies, ads, and TV shows. :D
Even magazine ads that show a computer screen are usualy Macs.
Or maybe it's because I'm new to Macs (6 months) that I'm seeing more :eek:

I'm watching an old Simpson rerun... the one where Homer builds the "Mr. X" muckraking website... hilarious.

The computer (retail: $5000) is obviously a Power Macintosh (G3 or G4 tower design). Right down to the Classic OS window widgets / ribbed title-bar and startup sound.

We should give an award to whomever is able to identify the exact model of Mac they took the sound from...

Favourite moment: Homer brings it home, sets it up, and begins computing: He picks up the mouse (a la "Scotty" in Star Trek IV) and issues a voice command: "Computer, Kill Flanders". Flanders is walking past and says "Did I hear my name? My ears are burning". Homer leans into the mouse and whispers, "Good start.. now finish the job!"

...oh, I have 'way too much time on my hands...

Check "Crossword answer" In the Canadian Kitchen for a subliminal siting.
