Good Guys Use Macs, Bad Guys Use PCs
from the well,-duh dept
Someone with way too much free time has discovered that on Fox’s popular TV show 24 (which I will admit being somewhat addicted to), all of the good guys use Macs, while the bad guys use PCs. Of course, in a show where you’re not supposed to know who’s good and who’s bad until it’s too late, that could be a very important (if inadvertant) visual clue. There was one “good” character using a PC, but then it turned out that she was really bad. Another (good) character recently switched from a Mac to a PC, so the theory is that she was good, but now she’s turning bad. The writers of the show deny it – and bringing it to their attention probably makes sure that it’s not much of an indicator any more. All I know is that I use a PC, so I’m obviously “bad”.
