    I've seen Windows Phone 8 pop up in two TV series that I look at. 1)Revenge 2)Scandal. In revenge it's a blue HTC, and in Scandal it's Lumia 920's. (Yes. Plural). In both series, they started off in the earlier episodes using BlackBerries and iPhones, now, WP8 is in the mix.

    To me, it shows that Microsoft is trying to get the word out there!

    Those are 2 of my fave shows right now & I was very happy to see the windows placement. One thing I didn't like is on Scandal, when Olivia talks on her phone, the screen orientation dances back & forth. It looks very awkward & I've yet to see any Windows Phone do that in person.

    That was ******* me off sooooo much. The screen never rotates when you're on a call.

    Everyone in NCIS LA is carrying a Lumia & now they have the surface too ! they focused on it multiple times ! the first episode they showed it , Eric brought one , unlocked it , showed the Start screen , popped up the kickstand , brought Touch cover , hooked em together , put it on a table & started typing & Video chatting at the same time ! an awesome Product Placement !

    They also showed the Surface in NCIS .

    Also , they are using Lumia in Hawaii Five-O & now they have a Surface too ! plus the Surface table !

    A bit more pessimistic article about MS pushing WP8.
    So much noise on WinMob, but Microsoft's silent on lovely WinPhone ? The Register

    I squeed like a fangirl (or boy, in my case) when I saw Sherlock use a Microsoft surface in ELEMENTARY. In fact, it seems a number of your CBS Shows (at least 4 of the most popular ones, anyways) are getting a ton of product placement from Microsoft. In fact, im surprised to not see any MS products in Persons Of Interest. (that may change though :P)

    Really annoys me when people do this. Obviously it's because they're not actually taking a real call, but it's not hard to just lock the screen for the takes in which the actor is "on the phone".
