21 Tech Myths Out There (Thanks, Movies)
There is a time bomb at a popular cafe. Everyone drinking their mochas will be blown into cinnamon dust if the bomb goes off. You are there, armed with only your movie knowledge and a pair of wire cutters. You look at the time bomb, eager to be a hero and save the cafe. But the real question is: which wire do you cut? The blue wire or the red wire? Sweat pours down your brow as you approach the bomb. Which wire do you choose?
Then the bomb squad shows up, pushes everyone away in a safe distance, calls you an “idiot,” and shoots at the bomb with a shotgun. It doesn't go off. Everyone is back to their coffee. Including you, person who learned everything about technology from movies.
We can hardly blame you since so many dramatic technology-based tropes were made for movies that wouldn't apply to real life. Here's a list full of tech myths you learned from pop culture.
