I’ve stumbled upon this gem while reading Abhijit Nadgouda’s blog – iface thoughts (it was in his side bar).
Every time you turn on your new car, you’re turning on 20 microprocessors. Every time you use an ATM, you’re using a computer. Every time I use a settop box or game machine, I’m using a computer. The only computer you don’t know how to work is your Microsoft computer, right?

It’s an interesting thought that an iPhone offers more processing power than one of the desktops I still have. It might be foolish to ignore the amount of technology we’ve gotten ourselves involved with.
