Best legitimate use of technology

The award goes to "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003), in which Trinity hacks into a power-plant network. Rather than using something that doesn't look anything like a real computer screen while typing a thousand words a minute (like you??d usually see in movies), Trinity uses the real-life security tool nmap, finds an open SSH port and hacks the system. -Jim Rapoza


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

Oscars--The eWEEK Technology in Film Awards.
