I don’t usually have enough time to be watching TV but I am a fan of the Burn Notice show. There is something about the fast paced action and stuff blowing up that just captures my attention. Ghostshel pointed out to me that they recently had a ad spot (product placement) in the show where they were showing off the BlackBerry Pearl.
Now this makes me wonder. I have always wanted to own a James Bond Uberphone but sadly I have found that they do not exist (YET!). I have yet to find a phone or watch(Knight Rider) that lets me control my car. So maybe spies are just settling for BlackBerrys? If a regular spy warrants a Pearl who gets the Tour?
Let me know if you spot any other BlackBerrys in popular TV shows. I always get a kick out of it. Most of the TV shows have computers doing things that they never could in real life but this BlackBerry was real. I just love seeing them trying to portray hackers as using a really cool GUI to “hack” the firewall… I wonder what they could make a BlackBerry do.
