well I don't have the time to research it right now but
The Net would be #1
Sneakers would be in there
Chain Reation would be in there
Maybe the Saint
MI, Swordfish, Hackers are good from your list
I have not seen either Anti-Trust or Firewall so I can't say either way.

I can see reason for the ones you have added plus its gets down to, How to you weigh something like this. This actions is worse than that one .
As with Firewall and the Ipod things .. Wouldn't that also go for ID4 and the Apple laptop being able to talk to the Alien ship and I wont go into the fact that the virus worked.

It is amazing how many things an apple product can talk to .. even if you just have a couple of minutes to mcgyver (sp) something up. Kinda makes you wonder if your missing out on something by not using a MAC .. Oh wait .. read the subject line again ...


I do think I would have picked some other ones as well, but the list does point out some of the ones that grab you and slap you in the face.

Jurrasic Park wasn't THAT bad in the instance you sighted...

The file browser used is real and did exist at the time of the movie.  Of course it didn't run on PPC macs at the time, minor detail. : )

The software wasn't the problem.  It was the teenage girl hopping onto a locked system and instantly knowing how it worked.

Yup, I never mentioned the software because it's actually a real program. It was the girl that stuck that out with her awesome statement.

Sigh. The front page comes with consequences. Now we have to deal with douches signing up for accounts just to diss the list. You should deactivate new accounts until this dies off.
