Hear hear:

Can we please please please have a moratorium on Internet search engines figuring prominently in "thrillers"? I mean, come on, Google is a gift from the gods, and the other day when that virus made Google unusable, I felt like part of my brain had been cut off. But it simply is not, by any stretch of the imagination, "thrilling" to see a movie hero sitting at a computer typing. Not even when it's Denzel Washington. It's been said before and it will have to be said again, because this is the hip new way to get vital information across to a movie audience without having characters standing around saying things like "As you know, Bob, Manchurian Global is a totally evil corporation" so it's sure to keep showing up in "thrillers," but it has now officially Been Done To Death and is no longer cool.
