See a Tower of iPads from The Mentalist

A TV show is obligated to do something unique for its season finale, but a tower of iPads is not necessarily what that obligation entitles. CBS’ police drama The Mentalist stuck such a tower into a character’s room. Rather than an unexpected headline-grabber (wait, are we geeks really this desperate for more news pertaining to something Apple?), it seems like the tower is a quick “Hey, we need to make something that looks like a homemade surveillance system.” “Hmm, let’s stack a couple of these iPad thingamajigs on top of each other.” “Apple marketing! Let’s do it!”

Anyway, check out the computer on the bottom left. What kind of iPad-based system utilizes a Windows PC? Whoever designed it obviously does not know what he or she is doing, or how to keep a good tech flow. Then again, monitors would have been a better, more economical choice than iPads for a setup like this so this makes no sense whatsoever.

Needless to say, I can’t comment on the show otherwise since I have never seen it.
