Check out my other blogs: Sow What Journey http://sarahsowwhat.tumblr.com www.100actsofgreen.org As a homeschooling Girl Scout I am often doing my Journey's as part of my school work. Which means that I have to plan and implement them myself. I have been asked to share this with others. My first blog was with the Senior Sow What Journey. Since I plan to earn 5 other Journeys -- this will be the site for all information.

Your phone was more powerful than NASA? - Throwback Thursday - Made w/Code

Its ‪#‎throwbackthursday‬ and I want to take a look and talk about our modern technology we call the cell phone. I remember when my parents got a matching set of phones that had a walkie talkie setting, I also remember when the flip phone was cool. Now we have phones that have absolutely everything. You can have hundreds of apps, have the phone tell you jokes, you can listen to music on it, take photos with it, send emails... you can do anything and everything!

A couple facts I found about the modern phone is that the have more power than NASA did in 1969 when they landed men on the moon. Crazy right? All their computers and pieces of technology don't even compare to a phone that most middle schoolers have today.

And the chip in the singing birthday card you got this year, yeah that tiny chip that sings is stronger than the technology of all the Allied forces in 1974. Wow.

Do you like gaming? The PS3 now is known as an out of date gaming system and you can purchase it for $300 or less. Pretty cheap as far as gaming systems go right? But not as up to date and technologically advanced as the PS4. However the PS3 has more technological power than the US Military Supercomputer did in 1997 (thats only 16 years ago) and costs WAAAAAAAAAAYYY less. The Supercomputer cost a couple MILLION dollars!

Want to see other things that people are doing to advance in technology? Go check out the ‪#‎madewithcode‬ website!
Do you have any crazy facts about technology? Please share I'm would love to read it :)
Hope y'all have a happy Thursday!
Yours in Coding,
Sarah Y.
