It gets worse just watch the news, rows and rows of Dell machines I saw a 
report from Scotland Yard the other day the guy was stood by a desk with... 
yep a Dell TFT Monitor on it.

The thing is these programs are watched by people who want to be informed the 
news is believed so it follows that if you see News at 10 and the Police 
using that particular make of equipment the subliminal message is "If they 
use it that must be the best, we better get one".
