Strangest use of an iPod

The award goes to the 2006 movie

"Firewall," in which Harrison Ford plays a security expert at a bank who gets caught in a scheme to steal money for a gang that has taken his family hostage. Ford takes his daughter's iPod, hooks up a scanner to it and takes photos of bank account numbers. Ford says, amazingly, "10,000 songs, 10,000 accountsit won't know the difference." -Chris Preimesberger


In honor of the 80th Annual Academy Awards, eWEEK presents its own version of the
