"These phones, such as those running the Apple iOS and Google Android operating systems, offer "more computing power than Apollo 11 when it landed a man on the moon," Nancy Gibbs writes for Time."

Perhaps, but we're not going to the moon with our phones. Instead, we are 'liking' pictures of kittens.
It's easy to buy the technology but more people have to learn how to realize its full potential. In the 60's there was a big push to get Americans up to speed in math and I don't think today's generation is more advanced, despite the superior technology.

Yeah, it's a shame we have drifted away from the 80's when you had to know how to program to use a computer.

You mean we missed a few? They must have been hiding. They have to come out eventually and then we'll get them.
