Jonathan Ross now has a TiPB on his desk in Film 2001. In the previous series there was a B&W G3 and a matching 15" LCD monitor. I noticed that for the present series the Mac had given way to some generic looking PC laptop. Unlike many on these boards I am no Mac fascist but I was rather glad last week to see the crappy looking PC laptop replaced by the 'tobacco tin' PowerBook.

I also recall that a while back Graham Norton had a 15" Studio display which was always clearly visible. Unfortunately it showed Windows running. Having said this though he's now replaced it with a Sony TFT.

Also, I have to confess that I've seen Children's TV, and on CITV it shows a B&W studio display, all the time.

And that's not forgetting the TiBook shown on the coffee table of teh new L'oreal add.

A while back, on Dawson's creek it also showed young dawson working on a G4 tower connected to a Studio display. The Apple sign was hard to miss! Oh yeah, and in the background there was a Blueberry iMac DV

I no longer have a signature.
