No, but you have a phone capable of much the same sort of stuff. Granted it doesn't look like what the movie/media imagined it would be. Most of it would be modifying text files and uploading them to the right place at the right time.

There's VR stuff going on now that could make hacking look more "cool" but it would be much the same... Modifying text files, etc.

I liken it to looking at books from the 1800's describing how flying would work.

That's a good point - surely the always on data connection is more cyberpunk than a datajack...
