Just As I Thought

PowerBooks in the desert

In a fluff piece about reporters covering a possible Iraq war, WRC-TV (Washington’s NBC O&O) showed how journalists are equipped: sleeping bags, tents, water, wet wipes… and an Apple PowerBook.
The NBC crew uses the PowerBook to download & edit video and pictures, then sends the data via satellite phone.
I wonder why NBC News, in bed with Microsoft, chooses to use PowerBooks? Maybe the Windows laptops take too much precious time to figure out?
