Cat Can't Scratch It
- May 9, 2000
The hacking scenes on TV and in the movies are enough to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck if you have any knowledge of computer-doings. Even novice computer-ites know when they’ve been had with the on-screen shens, but it makes for exciting scenes mainly because of the lack of realism.
So forgive Hollywood if they try to spice things up with pretty flashing lights and frenzied typing. After all, it's basically impossible to film accurate hacking and have it be visually interesting in the way film demands.
