Computers and… Movies

I am always amazed by the capacities of the computers and their weirdness in the movies.

See for example:

– A hacker can get into the most sensitive computer in the world before intermission and guess the secret password in two tries.

– Any PERMISSION DENIED has an OVERRIDE function. (See “Demolition Man” and countless others)

– Complex calculations and loading of huge amounts of data will be accomplished in under three seconds. Movie modems transmit data at a speed of two gigabytes per second.

– If you display a file on the screen and someone deletes the file, it also disappears from the screen. (e.g., “Clear and Present Danger”)

– If a disk has got encrypted files, you are automatically asked for a password when you try to access it.

– No matter what kind of computer disk it is, it’ll be readable by any system you put it into. All application software is usable by all computer platforms.

– The more high-tech the equipment, the more buttons it has (“Aliens”). However, everyone must have been highly trained, because the buttons aren’t labeled.

– Most computers, no matter how small, have reality-defying three-dimensional, real-time, photo-realistic animated graphics capability.
