SCRUM burn down chart question

Does anyone out there know about the trendy ‘agile’ project management methodology scrum? I’ve looked into it a little bit and It seems to me that a lot of it is just rebranding of exisiting ideas to make them sound more exciting – e.g the project manager is called a scrum master. Oh Per-lease…. So my question is: Is a burn-down chart (see photo attached, showing hours of work remaining to be done against time remaining) really just the same as a conventional cumulative spend chart? – or have I missed the point? If I have missed something then great, I’d love to learn a better way. Let me know!
