Just saw the movie(pretty good!) and though the hardware used in the film is Sony, some of the screenshots were of OS 9 and its window scheme.

I never saw Charlie's Angels in the theater, but just got done watching the DVD. I was let down when it appeared that only non-Apple hardware was being used in the movie. That changed though when I thought I spotted a piece of Apple hardware. Maybe someone can confirm for me...

The scene is when Cameron Diaz is breaking into the super computer. She does that cartwheel move and gets to the top of the computer. When she opens the little panel to access the inside of the computer it opened up just like a G3/G4 tower! I couldn't confirm it was an Apple product until the shot was zoomed out and showed the back panel with the ports. I don't own a tower so I don't look at one every day, but the one in the movie sure looked like an Apple tower (from my memory).

bweseman: yes that was a G3 tower she was breaking into. I noticed that as well when I saw the movie.

Yeah, it was too bad that more Macs weren't used...
