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 The PS3 now is known as an out of date gaming system and you can purchase it for $300 or less.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!
