Was googling Big Bang Theory to see what model iPhone Sheldon uses and ran across a Android Forum bashing the use of Apple iPhone on the show. Now a more logical argument would be why they use PCs lol! Their super nerds and true nerds would have a MacBook Pro running both Mac snd Win for gaming. Why do Android users think that nerds wouldn't use a iPhone it's not made to be a trend device it is made for function. Mac has better programs for making charts, graphs, and fomulating data than Windows but Windows is a leader for gaming.
Any real science geeks around wanna give your 2 cents? Which do you think would be more logical for a Physicist a Windows, iPhone,or Android...and what computer is more logical PC or Mac?

i'm no science geek. but i do know that geeks in general don't like to tied down or limited in anyway, shape, or form. and to me that's the difference. don't get me wrong Apple products are great for the regular joe. but geeks like to have there cake and eat it too. the more stuff the item can do i.e. phone,computer,electronics etc.. the better. and you just don't get that with Apple.

I'd agree that PC wise it might make more sense to see Sheldon and the other guys running Macs or dual-boot machines with Linux flavors on them. On the smartphone front though I'd say they'd either have a jailbroken iPhone or, even more likely, an Android device. Those guys are meant to be big-time tinkerers and hacker types (in the old-school, positive sense of the word) - I think Android might suit them best.

Now I find that interesting that you say that, now Howard yes he hacks everything. I could totally see him running a rooted Android device. But they are also sticklers on security of their stuff while pointing out "child play" security on others stuff. Mac is the most secure and can dual boot windows or linex. Most books written about hackers (where there is no product placement by companies) still write the characters using various Apple computers. Even my computer teachers in college perfered Apple computers with Macintosh or Linex they really hated Windows all together talked about it like a plague we had to tolerate for all the computer illiterate morons on earth lol

It is a joke of sorts in my house
My son is gifted and he also has SPD what makes him a nerd geek
He works best with routines
We discovered first Sheldon has some of the same shirts .....
Son has Alienware PC and iPhone
We just upgraded again on storage and now he begs for Ubuntu
Son may not be a genius but he could be mini Sheldon

does he run around saying "Bazzinga" lol Sheldon is the modern grown up Urkel or Urkel 2.0


I just hope they don't cancel it after 8 years like House MD was. It crazy dumb perverted shows like Family Guy, South Park, and Simpsons run for 20 years while good shows like House, Highlander, Walker etc get canceled after 6-8 years

Yeah Benny it is but when u look at the dumb shows that have been and are still running with no threat of cancellation, it gets annoying.

And imutter i would probably have to kill Sheldon at a restraunt lol
