Default What apps will make me feel like Jack Bauer from "24"? : )

Please Login to Remove!

Just wondering if anybody knew of any really cool pseudo spy apps.

Worth asking. Laugh away. : )

Default Jack Bauer

Send all your buddies PIN messages and tell them not to show them to anyone else but to meet you somewhere, then see if the whole world shows up like they did in last night's episode.

I was wondering how long it would take a crackberry addict (and 24 addict) to start this post. But actually it was Mike who had the BB, not Jack. Jack looks like he has the boring old regular cellphone (looks like a Nextel phone).

I love shows that use technology but at least use an app that is real. That sort of looked like BB Messenger but had the text where a title would normally be. Then the second text ("tell no one") was just plain black text on white background, what's up with that?


While we are on the Jack Bauer thread, here's a little quiz...

1. In this season, Jack has a new watch (G-Shocks were used in previous seasons), who is the maker of it?

2. In season one, Jack confiscated a knife from "the businessman" in the back seat of the limo. This season (and in last night's show) he has the latest version of this knife, what knife is it?

3. Since season one, Jack has sported the same handgun. What is it?

Jack had the i860, very boring phone indeed.

I use the CTU ringtone from www.adamdaley.com/wap

It makes every call seem critical to national security.

As do I. Except for the fact that watching 24 with the surround sound speakers on made me think my phone kept ringing in the other room.

1. I saw a tissot. Can't recall if it was on Jack or not...

2. Damn... forget the name. German made? somewhere in east europe?

3. No clue. It doesn't thrill me. What does however is the one from Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the gun he took out of where the ship picture was in one of the hiding places in his house then screwed on the silencer. Whatever gun that is, it's bad@SS.

1. Not sure...

2. Not sure... but I think it's the Microtech Halo III (I was actually curious myself after that scene)

3. H&K USP Compact On Second thought... I think it's the H&K P2000.

Well, heck, if we're throwing out random-but-somewhat-on-topic 24 insights, how about this:

This season, when Jack was hiding in the airport and working with CTU to set up the strike on the terrorists, he was communicating via his Treo 650. After he was captured and ever since, he's been using a standard flip phone. This was the the one the head terrorist made him use to communicate with CTU. What? Did the terrorists steal his 650 and replace it for him? Did CTU not notice his number changed?

The 24 ringtone is the only ringtone worth having IMO. I've got it on my Cisco 7960 IP phone at work as well.

He upgraded, everyone here knows the Treo 650 is no good. Besides just cause you upgrade or change a phone does not mean he has to change the number, he can always port it you know.

And here's the answers.....

1. MTM SpecOps Watch - BlackHawk model with the ballistic watch band. you can check them out at http://www.specialopswatch.com/products.htm

2. Give Hanwei a prize as it is the Microtech Halo III. In the first season he took a Halo II away from the "businessman" in the back of the limo. This season he upgraded to the latest version of Halo, the Halo III. You can check out the knife at http://videoknife.com/otf-mt-halo3.html

3. His handgun is usually a Sig P229, but he does use H&K compacts and various other weapons thru the seasons...

Thanks for playing....

Sure, but it took me one week and two service reps to port my Sprint PCS number from my Palm i500 phone to my Cingular BB 7290. I doubt the terrorists had all the necessary forms and whatnot with them at the time.

so true.. but Jack isn't a spec-ops guy. He just uses a watch that is the spec ops model. It's actually by a company called MTM Watches. Very cool watches, but very pricy. Their top of the line watch is $1600 and is waterproof to nearly 40k feet below sea level. Again, very stupid because nobody is going that deep but it's a great marketing tool.
