Palm Pre on Survivor

And we thought the Ford product placement on Fringe was forced! Last week’s episode of Survivor so heavily featured the Sprint Palm Pre that we actually found ourselves laughing at the ridiculousness of it. Here’s what happened: as an award for winning a challenge, a group of contestants were whisked away to another island to eat by a waterfall. They were also given a Pre to “take pictures” of their little trip, even though there’s obviously not going to be any Sprint service on the island, and they sure don’t have a computer to hook up to and move the pictures onto for printing. But that’s just the start of the absurdity...
