Over the last few years he's played an important, though rarely seen, character on Fringe... but in two cases they resorted to CG animations (one of which was turned into an amusing, most-of-episode gimmick) and in one case another actor channeled him in a much more literal way than the Hollywood norm.

Even better, it was a *female* actor (Anna Torv) who "channeled" him and did a pretty good job of it too.

It's distracting. Especially with the laptops, where Apple plasters a large illuminated logo on the back. It pulls me out of the movie and makes me think about Apple for a few seconds. In my opinion, they should cover up the brand entirely. As much as I'm a tech guy, I really don't need to know what brand of computer the guy in the movie is using, unless it has something to do with the narrative.

So they should cover up all the brands everywhere in the movie? Oh no, he's drinking a Pepsi! Oh no, he's driving a Ford!

You know what you are? You're an anti-fanboy. And you're just as bad as the fanboys.

Comment Re:Sony is no longer a reputable vendor (Score 1) 438

What happens when eventually, every electronic device you owns fail and they won't repair it for free? Will you stop using electronic devices? I had a Sony TV that lasted for 13 years and it recently broke, I'll never buy that company again!!!

There's a difference between 4 months and 13 years...
