The MacBook Pro on Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night desk was like a cast member, a regular. Apple was always a part of the show and was listed as a sponsor in the credits. Something has changed.
When Jimmy made the move to the Tonight Show from Late Night, he took his MacBook Pro with him, but not the Apple logo. NBC went out of their way to cover the logo with a skin. Apple is also no longer listed as a sponsor in the credits. What gives?
My guess (and totally a seat of the pants guess, at that) is that The Tonight Show asked Apple to back the cash truck up to the stage door if they wanted to keep the logo on Jimmy’s desk. If so, that’s too bad. Everyone knows it’s a Mac. It just looks a little goofy. Do something about this, willya Jimmy?
