Can't stand product placement. Pisses me off. And tonight, my already not so good opinion of Coldplay took a nosedive. On the latest CSI:NY (Jamalot), one of the detectives pulls out his mobile as it begins to ring, explaining to his colleague that it's Coldplay's "Talk". One minute later, in the all-too-frequent adbreaks over here, what do we get but an ad for Coldplay's "Talk" ringtone.
Nerd alert: also on tonight's CSI:NY, possibly the first TV broadcast of laser microdissection, where you use a laser to blast around a small area of sliced tissue (goes down to the single-cell level) and ping the microscopic piece of tissue into an awaiting tube.
