I provide a service. All of the systems I've hacked are much more secure today because of my efforts. My girlfriend calls me 'Robin Hood'. It's a double entendre. I'm uncircumcised!

It is sad that the reviews on this movie are so poor. Personally my wife and I thought it was very good. I enjoyed the movie and the concept of a 99 dollar laptop is nice. We are quite some time from a price like that, but one can dream. Anyway, I have learned to never let someone else's opinion spoil what could be a great movie. I really enjoyed the film and hope the reviews get better!!
