OSNews, Generic OSes Dan Hon makes a thought-provoking assertion in his blog: remember all the ridiculous, unrealistic computer interfaces that Hollywood characters are always using, showing "hackers" infiltrating systems by flying through virtual reality worlds of strange codes, and cutesy animations accompanying every task? Hon's point is that instead of ridiculing these unrealistic interfaces, maybe we should try to emulate them. He makes a pretty good case.

Agreed ;)

In the movie swordfish, the hacker crack the password while a girl gave him a blow job and the bad guy pointing a gun at his head. If a hacker can crack the password with half the body's blood down under, the password must be "password".

Yeah, and they said it would normally take 60 minutes, so they gave him 60 seconds. Classic ;)
