I always notice when characters on TV use gadgets like cell phones and PDAs. It's a little obsession that began with an episode of Angel where a lawyer decapitated another lawyer with a signal sent from her Palm III. Similarly, I was constantly amazed at the things that Jack Bauer could do with his Treo. So I was very interested to see Floyd on 30 Rock—the show which is the inspiration for the name on this blog—using the relatively new Palm Centro. I think that I've also seen a number of characters on CW sitcoms using the Centro.
This would seem to be good news for Palm as they seem to have lost the cast of How I Met Your Mother. Most of the characters on this CBS sitcom used to use Treos and have gradually migrated to iPhones. The iPhone is particularly popular as a TV prop these days. The most prominent of the iPhone's many TV appearances appear to be on the canceled NBC series Journeyman and on CBS' vampire series Moonlight.
