One of our favourite programmes in television at the moment is New Tricks about a team of quirky ex policemen going back and solving unsolved crimes. One of the policemen is an oddball character who is a dab hand at using his computer to do graphic and sound detective work. It has been clear from the start of the series that he is using a 17" powerbook but the Apple logo has been airbrushed off the lid.

Tonight, just after I commented on this, the laptop appeared with it's logo glowing proudly in full view of the audience. The camera cut from our hero to another policeman and before it cut back my wife wondered out loud if the logo would have gone by the time the camera returned.

Sure enough - it had!

I guess the VT editor turned to pick up the phone at the wrong moment.
