Hacking into an Alien Database...No Problem!

I'm a big movie fan and I've always been amused at how user interfaces and computer technologies are used in movies. Jackob Nielsen has done a great job distilling all of the UI "bloopers" in his article, Usability in the Movies--Top 10 Bloopers.

My favorite is #10, since I've worked at Sun for over 13 years. and, I have a real problem with #8.  I mean, I understand Jackob's point, but it's James Bond...he can do anything.  ;)
 

Comments:

Another thing about interfaces in movies: they ALWAYS make noise! text appearing or changing on the screen is always accompanied by blips and bleeps. It's so tiresomely unrealistic. Lookh (or listen) out for it next time there's a computer screen on the film or TV program you're watching.
