Factual error: Text doesn't actually move up a screen, it only appears to; it's really only blinking lights. As such, the improvised scanner wouldn't work, you'd only get a small slice of each line.

James King III

Other mistake: In the scene where Mary Lynn Rajskub is driving Harrison Ford around, she is told at the beginning of the scene to "pop the clutch", signifying that she is driving a manual transmission vehicle. However, during the drive, she never removes her hands from the steering wheel to shift gears.

Audio problem: When Jack is in the server room (about half way in the movie) it's pretty quiet. Normally that many servers make a lot of noise, not to mention the air conditioning. But there they are, talking with no background noise whatsoever.

Factual error: When Janet dials 911 from her cell phone, we hear a low tone followed by two higher tones. In reality, 911 is a high tone followed by two lower tones. Additionally, she dials 911 and puts the phone up to her ear without ever pressing the "Talk" button.

Deliberate mistake: When Harrison Ford and Mary Lynn Rajskub are crossing the tracks, its Rajskub who's driving the car, not Ford. This is because the filmmakers originally had Rajskub driving the entire way. They later refilmed the drive with Ford driving, but kept the shot of them crossing the tracks the same. Ford and director Richard Loncraine confirm this on the special features of the DVD.
