Computers in Movies

I am a big movie fan, but what I always end up doing is watching for what types of computers they use. For example, I saw “National Treasure” this weekend. All they used was HP – EVERYTHING. Monitors, laptops, etc. They must have had a deal with HP or partnership. Then I watched “Swordfish” on dvd = they use Dell, and the “Italian Job” – all Dell. I think in “Swordfish” they had Dell, but they were running some weird or old version of IE, or like IE in kiosk mode. It is always fun to see what movie makers do with technology, and if they get it right. Like in “Swordfish”, they talk about getting a DS3 connection to the house. 28 T1’s ! Woah, alot of bandwidth. There are also some movies who try to come up with like their own OS and interface, those are fun to. Like if you are a hacker you see this magical mystery land in your computer. Wouldn’t that be cool to see in real life? Like you are on some acid trip in your computer and everything is 3D. Maybe one day, but until then, you can still watch for computer products in movies because the more technological people get, the more common they will be in productions.
