This got me thinking: when will an iPhone make its first appearance on a television show - in which series?
Well, it won't likely be Battlestar Galactica, where digital media are banned, lest the humans be compromised by Cylons, and the phones are attached to walls with wires. It won't be Lost, either, which is not quite yet in the present (though you never really know with that extraordinary show).
Otherwise ... certainly any of the Law and Orders, "ripped from the headlines," could sport an iPhone, and probably will, sooner or later. When that happens, I predict it will mostly likely be in the hands, or at least the view, of John Munch (Richard Belzer's digitally savvy character).
But, ok, I'll stop making conditional predictions. I have no inside information, but I predict the first iPhone we'll see will be in .... Heroes ... on NBC ... on a late-November episode.
Let's check back here in the November, and see if I'm right ...
