    • "One-and-one half billion people, all over the world, are walking around with powerful computers in their pockets and purses. The fact is they often don’t realize it, because they call it something else. But today’s high-end cell phones have the computing power of a mid-1990’s PC (while consuming only one one-hundredth of the energy, by the way). Even the simplest, voice-only phones have more complex and powerful chips than the 1969 on-board computer that landed a spaceship on the moon!"
