“The Apollo Guidance Computer, which helped man land on the moon in 1969, contained 12,300 transistors. The iPhone 7 contains 3.3bn,” FT columnist

  1. Alan Thuring didn’t name his invention, the world’s first computer, “Colossus” for nothing

  2. Hmm they could land humans on the moon with 12300 transistors, but we can only watch cat videos, play candy crush, & maybe buy a Big Mac with 3.3B transistors.

    “It’s the man, not the machine”…
