And the brand name of the : buttset? "Infobahn 3000". PLEASE. And you know everything there is to know about computers/telephony 30 years from now. So that means we have to take your word for it that they will even be using DTMF 30 years from now. . .just like it was used 30 years ago? I think not. Since your mind apparently thinks only in terms of todays tech shouldn't you also be complaining about the fact they they are using part of his brain to store data, and he gets 'synaptic seepage' from storing too much? Come on the movie was sci-fi, just cuz they were to cheap to make a new prop for him to hack doesn't mean that it was WRONG! If anything you should be complaining about the 'INTERNET - 2021' thing at the beginning. ObHack: getting my car home last night. Let me explain. About 5 minutes away from my buddies house my battery died. . .this shouldn't have stopped my car so I checked under the hood. Turns out that the threaded terminal post for the wire from the alternator to the battery had broken off. The alternator wasn't doing anything. After about 1.5 hours of trying various things to get the wire to stay attached to the little bit of the terminal that was left I finally realized that the wire might stay attached with some rigging elsewhere. I ended up putting the loop connector over the less than 1/8" of the post that was left and pulling the wire taught. Then fastening the cable with a little piece of wire to a nearby hose. I didn't think the rigging would make it to the next gas station, it ended up taking me the 20 minute ride home. Finally got to bed at 4 am. . .after leaving at 1:30. Geez what a night. . . Obnotahack: watching commercials for Readers Digest Home Handymans tricks and secrets and then calling it an ObHack. ** Heller -- "This male chauvinist I must love and protect, for to love an endangered species is politicly correct" -- Capitol Steps Can you imagine having an implant so the government can track you anywhere you go?
