I watched the movie “The Net” a few days back again and I noticed that all computers that were used were Mac’s(!) Even the woman from the US consulate in Mexico printed the visa form with a Mac! I guess the makers of the movie made a nice deal with Apple to promote Mac’s! 😉

It was funny to see though that even the viruses that were used in the movie were Mac viruses. A bit unbelievable of course because everybody knows that almost no viruses were made for the Mac! Even more unrealistic was that the same Mac virus that was captured in the beginning of the movie crashed a mainframe at the end of it.

All in all the movie was enjoyable and more realistic when it comes to computers, hacking and programming than most, but I guess software developers like me notice only the inconsistencies.
