Black, old-style phone on a counter

The amazing technology in our hands

Every now and then I look at my very mid-range phone, and I'm just amazed that we have this technology in our hands. I still remember when the Nokia N97 was the most advanced device I had seen.

Of course, the phone I remember the most fondly was the Nokia 6310i. I had the silver version, and the blue screen left me thinking it was something out of Star Trek. Pretty sure I was into @StarTrek Enterprise at the time.

Today, I have a @SamsungMobile A30s, grumble about the camera quality, and totally take for granted how much I can do with this slim device that I carry with me everywhere.

We have technology that would have seemed like mind-blowing CGI to the me of roughly 10 to 15 years ago.
