Macs help Sky Captain save the day, win converts

Cool... I knew that the whole "Sky Captain" movie was made with computers and bluescreens, but I didn't know it was all done on macintosh computers. As the proud owner of a new 15" Mac Powerbook G4, I applaud the moviemakers that made that decision.

According to visual effects supervisor Darin Hollings, "Kerry [Conran, the director] was such a proponent of the Mac that he wanted to make the entire movie in Cupertino."

P.S. For those of you saying "huh?", Apple's headquarters are in Cupertino, CA.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
