How come every movie or tv show has to zoom in on that apple logo on the back of the screen? Why are they shoving that apple down our throats?

Product placement.

Coke, Nike, Pepsi, Apple, the list goes on...

... and 'creative' people (like writers & actors) like them because they are prettier than those other ugly, utilitarian devices.

They also "advertise" drugs and alcohol, cigarettes, police, crime, guns and murder.

I won't get into how we are supposed to behave.

Yeah .. what are you missing. Advertisement. Apple pay them to do it.

It's not new, either? It's like.. as old as tv.

Have a gander with the GOOGLE search engine, the best search engine on the internet - why it's the one I use because it always returns relevant and informative results and I just love the friendly nature of the company, oh arent they just wholesome and the best?

Google for Apple Product Placement

Well they do look better generally. Highly recognizable brand. Like someone else said creative types use them more frequently. I don't know anything about props but I would assume it's easier to make a bunch of one type than a ton of different ones, cheaper too. So if they're aware an Apple laptop is going to be asked for more frequently, why not just all the props Apple?

I don't know if APple is paying for the product placement. I would think some of the time yes. Same thing with guns when you think about it though. Always a Glock. Easy/recognizable.
