free your mind

This article on Wired describes a device which can turn off all tvs within signalling distance (standard remote I think). Sort of like an EMP blast effect on sentinels in The Matrix (and yes, I had to research that - I'm not quite such a geek as all that).

Speaking of which, there is a lot of writing about the religious symbolism of the matrix series. I have an inkling that part of the success of the film was its astute use of christian imagery. The sort of stuff which is so deeply welded into the culture we have no idea that it is there.

And, of course, lots of very pretty leather clothing (which is justified because they wear true grunge in real life).
