    imagine if you could go back in time to show the people a smart phone and what it was capable of doing, and how much power and memory it had compared to those early computers.

    It is amazing just how far consumer computer technology has come in such a relatively brief time. It does make you wonder just how it will develop over the next 20 or 30 years.

    They are like the sort of computers you would see in the seventies you see them sorts of computers in films as well.


    Either no one back then thought of todays technology in terms of making computers smaller and more powerful or maybe it just was not possible back then.

    Sometimes though computers now can be too complicated.

    Like on the film Wargames where the WOPR (World Operations Planned Response) at NORAD'S Cheyenne Mountain complex is massive compared to today's computers

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Computers were huge, hardly any processing power or storage/memory, yet they got man to the moon, solved the enigma code and so much more. now we have computers infinitely more powerful, millions of times more powerful - and millions more of them - yet the best the world seems to do is facebook and twitter. god help humanity.

    You could have said the same about 30 years ago when most privately owned computers were used for playing games.

    At one point in the 1990s it looked like it was going to by just consoles for home users & anything else would only be bought by the more dedicated / semi pro users.

    Then the Internet went mainstream....
