10 most annoying tech tricks in movies

So I just saw this article from news.cnet.com. The article is about the 10 most annoying “tech tricks” we always see in the movies. 

The list (taken from the article):
10. Zoom in! (aka. Enhance!)
09. AI with attitude
08. Preposterous user interfaces
07. Bleep! Blort! BING!  - (They are referring to the noises which always come from the characters high tech devices)
 06. It’s a supercomputer—because it has 10 monitors
05. Cell phones as plot points
04. Autopilot
03. Laptops as powerful as supercomputers
02. Easy-to-defeat biometric security
01. Copy the hacked data before you are found out scene

I must say I find most of the things mentioned in the article to be true. I have seen tons of movies where one of these scenes happens. The one I find most annoying is when someone in a movie or series find a crappy picture and is able to zoom in on some tiny detail. This would be impossible in real life, but it happens all the time in the movies. 

What do you guys think?

This is just ridiculous:

i can remember a few times i would watch a movie, typically highly charged thrillers where everything would look right and then they would show the OS on the computer, a complete sham mockery of windows that looked like a toddler rendered
