Though it's true that hacking is not an act that's technically legal in most places around the world - noone wants to have their computer busted into - it's not yet been agreed upon between the world's nations whether or not they should agree to outlaw digital attacks the way they did chemical warfare.

Total Recall Kate Beckinsale interview shows love (and distrust) of sci-fi and action

With the next giant science fiction blockbuster Total Recall (2012) headed to theaters this summer (out now, in fact), SlashGear took the opportunity to speak with Kate Beckinsale on her role as the main villain. As it turns out, Beckinsale doesn't just find herself in a series of action movies because she's custom-built for the role, it's got a lot to do with her love for science fiction, fantasy, and the whole action genre as well.
