Hawaii Five-O just Bings it: WP7 makes another TV appearance
So last night on CBS, the new series (of an old series) Hawaii Five-O had a snazzy Windows Phone 7 placement. At about 18 minutes in to the show, two of the characters are in a museum. The male character suggests that the art piece was an original Clifton Bowles, the female doesn't believe him (they never do, amirite?), so he tells her to "Bing it!".
The female lead then pulls out an LG Optimus 7 and proceeds to Bing the gentleman's name. After this the show evidently went to commercial, where not one but reportedly two ads appeared. Not bad Microsoft, not bad.
Things I learned: Hawaii Five-O has a lot of pretty girls in it and I'm glad I'm vegetarian.
Thanks, Joe C & Tim O., for the tip!
