freitasm: This is an old one... Perhaps we could get videos of terrible technology application in movies?


 


CSI is a fail in every way. Not just in the use of TVOS. The whole thing. Gritty moodlit labs for the win!

Also: extrapolation of an entire crime scene from a single pixel of reflection off a car window shot via security cam.




iPad Pro 11" + iPhone SE + 2degrees 4tw!

I love those 'let me enhance it' scenes, where they get minute details out of a badly pixelated image to start with. Great stuff.

My favorite is when they are searching a database, it flashes up an image of every entry being examined for a match.

And when they type madly on the keyboard to do something that would normally be a click of the mouse (screen facing away from camera).

For ages I have been thinking of starting a thread of terrible technology application in books. Dan Brown would feature prominently.

Anything that Hawaii Five-O does related to computers is apparently made-up on the spot, although they have a lot of product-placement for Microsoft's cloud storage system.

In "Castle" they made a point of sending an image away to be "enhanced" and it came back as a zoomed-in blurry mess which I thought was a nice touch.

There's also the presence of "Microsoft" branded monitors in virtually every cop show on TV that isn't sponsored by Apple, despite the fact they don't make such things.

I did think the malware encoded into the bones was a clever idea, infeasible obviously, but certainly novel.

One thing that is interesting is all the Polycom IP phone placement in many US shows. In 99% of cases the phones don't seem to be powered up though!

freitasm: A new class of IP addresses - over 256!
would that be the IP equivalent of everyone's phone number having '555' in it?
