    I don't get it. What was so fantastic about that picture that people were cyber stalking her?

    Well, it was Jessy Schram...

    But still, is it really believable that 30 people in Miami would be following her every move like that? Hell, that doesn't happen for real celebrities in LA...

    Yeah that stalking stuff was WAY too over the top...

    Oh and on a side note....

    I can totally suspend belief on some shows...but on CSI-M it's supposed to be based on reality..real crimes, real crime lab stuff....so why in the world do they have that COMPLETELY fake sci-fi style computer that they wave their hand and every file known to man pops up and they wave a finger and 10 images rotate around and they can manipulate them at will..plug the "monitor" if you will, is like 6 feet long!.

    Come on..enough of the sci-fi mixed with reality stuff CSI.

    The "Star Trek" like computer table is, I'm guessing, the artist's conception of the new Microsoft computer table (I can't remember the name) that was announced earlier this year. Hopefully some of the other geeks can remember the name or provide a link... but it has that kind of functionality, except it displays it on the table and not onto a giant screen (although, one would think, a screen could be interfaced to it via HDMI or the like). The connection of the mobile devices is also something this device can allegedly do, via IR or bluetooth just by setting them on the table.

    As far as the show is concerned, I just watch this for comic effect now. The whole thing is one giant joke... from the technical impossibilities to the complete disregard for common sense and police procedure. I watch just to be amused at how many things make me laugh out loud every episode!

    Time to come out from your bomb shelter. It's the Microsoft Surface, and was announced 4 months ago. They didn't even show a tenth of what it can do on the show.
