Something about the Dept. of Homeland Security telling Disney to pull the movie off the shelves as it contains "sensitive information"... Disney was served with a notice in 2007... (silly??!)

I came up across this on youtube

"...the CRAY 1 is able to recreate light and texture with such breath-taking realism..."

I think the Nintendo DS can do that :)

For its time, the Cray 1 was an awesome computer. Today's game machines run about as fast, and a workstation has 1000 times the capability at one millionth the cost. Wait till next year! :D

I loved Tron. It was a great cartoon that fed my imagination.

If you buy one of these greeting cards that play music and throw it on the floor and step on it, you have destroyed more computing power than existed on the entire planet at the time of the first moonlanding...
Agents from east and west would have killed each other (and probably have) for this kind of technology.

I loved Tron. I think I saw it three or four times.

And I put a lot of quarters in the Tron Game.
