Hollywood -- great at blowing things up, doesn't know squat about computers.
Have you ever been sitting in a theater when someone in the movie starts speaking a lot of technobabble? Did the word mainframe get used? Well, of course it did! In fact, we're pretty sure the entirety '90s sci-fi cinema could be summed up with the word mainframe.
So it's hardly any surprise that someone has mashed up a video wherein a host of clips are combined showing the gross and overdramatic use of mainframe.
Just once we'd like to see a movie where someone uses a mainframe computer to crunch a large amount of info. Census, the movie! It wouldn't be good, but it would be honest.
