“24’s” Jack Bauer to get Apple Tablet?



Fox’s24 hase never been shy about having its constabulary of terrorist smashers whip out the hottest new gadgets, but it looks like the production team isn’t even willing to wait for Steve Jobs to actually announce the Tablet later today before writing the device into the show’s seventh eighth season.

Rodney Charters, the director of photography on 24, tweeted yesterday:

Hmmmm looks like we may get an iSlate into [Jack Bauer’s] hands for Ep 20 getting giddy with excitement

He then continued:

Got a bit too excited probably more likely Episode 22 but Apple provided fingers crossed

Once the story hit, though, Charters backed off a bit… but not without issuing forth a stinging indictment of the “geeks” who were interested by his Tweets:

Oh dear seems like the geeks have gone a little overboard over my speculation that Jack Bauer might get an iSlate . On Tech Crunch???

Listen, Rodney, coming up with a plausible way for Jack Bauer to bludgeon Osama bin Ladin clean to death with an Apple Tablet is your job, writing about Apple news is mine! Let’s not start slinging stones here.
