Tech Movie: The Internship

It’s a few years old now, but if you haven’t had the chance to see it, The Internship is quite entertaining. It costars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as two washed up salesmen, who lost their jobs to the digital world, trying to figure out a new career path. They decide to try for an internship at Google.

So here are two guys in their mid-forties trying to land an internship against a bunch of 20-somethings. To them it was like having their dads with them. What makes it even more interesting is their lack of tech-savviness against the younger generation but they do bring their life experiences. You will see some Google products in the credits such as Google Drive, Translate, Google+, and more.

Tech movie: The Circle

We love tech movies. The Victor crew recently got to see The Circle. The main characters are played by Emma Watson (Mae) and Tom Hanks (Bailey). Mae leaves her hum-drum job join a tech/social media company called the Circle.

At first Mae is reticent about sharing her life but is pushed by co-workers to push the boundaries and become more transparent. As she becomes more transparent, she rises through the ranks from customer service to being part of the “inner circle.” She eventually has people all over the world following her, getting to know her, her friends, her family, and all she does.

As the movie moves along, eventually tragedy happens. Without giving away the full plot, through this tragedy and people she meets, she exposes the top people of the Circle and keeps them from hiding their secrets.

The taglines: Knowing is good. Knowing everything is better.
Some other lines are: Secrets are lies. Sharing is caring. Privacy is theft.
