My mother talks about the first time she heard the word “computer.” A television show explained how this machine could do advanced calculations faster than a human being. This computer was as big as a city block. She watched the program on her family’s black and white television.
When I bought my first personal computer, it was exponentially more powerful than that early computer – it had a color display and was smaller than my mother’s television.
Today, I carry an even more powerful computer in my pocket.
