    Folks,

    Does anyone watch Bull starting Michael Weatherly? Well on this week's episode I spotted a Windows Mobile! 950 maybe? I'm not sure, but it was Windows Mobile for sure. It's part of the opening scene with this strange guy either drowning himself or meditating in a bathtub.

    Did anyone else see it?

    I saw that episode and several before that where bull was using a 950. Not just for phone calls, but to Skype as well. Is Microsoft a sponsor of the series?

    MUST be sponsored, the phone was VERY prominently featured. You KNEW you were seeing a Windows Phone!

    That's on CBS. You will also see phones and Surface tablets on NCIS.
    It's called product placement. Companies pay for product placement in movies and TV.
    When a laptop is being used and it's apple you will always see a shot of the logo on the back of the screen, same thing.

    Microsoft is constantly having Lumias shown in TV and Movies. Why? Who knows. They don't have an advertising budget otherwise, so not sure why they budget for this.

    I know that! An interesting story about product placement was in the movie ET. They wanted to use M&M's but the Mars company refused because they thought ET would scare children. So Hershey was asked instead and ET put Reeses Pieces on the map!
