I was watching BBC news on BBC World yesterday, and I saw the laptop on the BBC presenter desk (which was re-ramped recently) has an Apple logo on it...

Is there a PowerBook G4? If so, it is the best promortion Apple can get (you simply cannot buy any promotion within a BBC program).

On most BBC News programs they use generic PC notebooks. BBC World may be different, but I'd find it strange that they'd give Apple such prominent advertising - can't miss the glow-in-the-dark Apple logo.

There's an Apple Cinema Display on the BBC Breakfast news. Although, I haven't watched it in ages.
Just who are Britain? What do they? Who is them? And why?

RI:SE used to have a load of iMacs in their news room, although it took me months to realise that. you can blame that on Zora Suleman being stood in front of them

Don't know about BBC World, but on BBC News 24 they use Dell Latitude notebooks on the desks.
