The portrayal of technology in TV shows and movies has long annoyed me, especially when a really good film does something daft that completely shatters my suspension of disbelief. Why can't they just show the actual, you know, interfaces people use to do things, instead of a bizarre mix of pretend-talk and wizardry? Ugh.
Anyhow, this article assembles some of the most egregious examples of awful Hollywood portrayals of technology that I've seen. Numbers eight and one are especially horrid, and the whole list is fascinating in its terribleness.
Have they missed any of your particular, uh, favorites?
