Can You Really Do That? Technology Bloopers

Useit.com recently featured a great Usability in the Movies - Top 10 Bloopers list that addresses some of the most annoying technology bloopers of all time. I couldn't agree more with their conclusion that user interfaces in film are always more exciting than they are realistic, and heroes have far too easy a time using foreign systems.

One of my favorite - or least favorite - tech bloopers is the fact that Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks use "wireless" internet in 1998's You've Got Mail, at a time when most everyone still used AOL and wireless internet was not commonplace in the home. What blunders bug you the most on the big screen?

I roll my eyes every time someone in a tv show or movie enhances an image and instead of being pixelated it becomes clear emough to read a number or identify a face.
