Well - lets keep the paranoia slightly in check shall we?

We know Hollywood are paid to place products and that is legitimate if
not a little underhand in the way they try and subliminially change our
buying habits.

Scotland Yard have to use *some brand* of monitor, and Dell would be a
reasonable choice. Was the interview shot in such a way you think that
you think it was deliberatly being promoted?

If you came by my desk for a cup of tea you would see my HP monitor but
I'm not trying to sell you anything
