    I used to have this little app that would run in the system tray that would cause your computer to make a sound as you moved the mouse, and when you typed it made beeping sounds and other things like that. It was pretty funny :)

    reminds me of the eddie izzard bit about hollywood computers. you never see a general screaming at his computer while simply trying to get a paragraph printed out

    and theres always a backdoor. they sit down to the computer

    > "Please enter password"
    hrmmmm......
    types "geoff"
    > "ACCESS GRANTED"

    "how did you know" cries the other person. "Well I knew the person who made it was called Geoff Geoffty Geoff, he was born on the first of Geoff Nineteen Geoffty Geoff".

    Or how about major mainframe systems that have a graphical interface with cubes and big labels for everything all displayed on a glowing graph. (Jurassic Park)

    What about a hacker being so good they can block and access whatever they want through the internet (Superman III, The Core)

    Noone owns anything other than a Dell or a Mac in the future.

    Computers can even recreate and figure out what an object is from a 2d picture (Bad Boys, Enemy of the State)

    Computers have light up buttons for everything.

    Computer viruses will either display a skull and crossbones that laugh at you and prevent you from doing anything, or they will have little creatures that eat your screen away.

    Big server towers have lightning bolts running across them when they are being hacked (Hackers)

    Government Systems usually have a map of the world as their background or for logins.

    Ever noticed that when someone is fixing a talking computer at some stage in the process the computer starts singing "Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do..."

    I also notice that when a computer task needs to be accomplished in 10 seconds the computer is able to enter an alternate universe for the last five seconds and suspend time until the task is complete

    that actually happens..has to do with the alien technolohy we aquired from those crashed space ships we have been backward engineering since the 50's
