Apple Inc is trying to change history, and here is the evidence...

Have you noticed that in many TV and streamed series even the poorest "hacker" uses an Apple Mac, when Macs are two to three times as expensive, and half as useful as a standard Windows machines?
Tramps use Macs. Lawyers with no money use Macs. Schools which are falling apart use Macs. 
Well, that is product placement for you, a distortion of reality driven by marketing. But I've noticed a more insidious marketing strategy, they are trying to change history.

Here is the evidence, look closely at these images from the past:








On a serious note the Channel Four documentary The Secret Teacher follows poor schools in the UK being helped by rich donations. So far so good. But episode 4 showed a head teacher apparently (but no really) using a Mac. So the school does not have the money to paint the window frames, but it does have (if you believe Apple product placers) the money to buy a Mac rather than a less expensive more usable Windows PC.
