Noticed a blog post from 12 years ago discussing “portable” computing and how things have changed. In 2006 the average laptop weighed about 7 pounds with batteries, compared to 20 years prior where my Compaq was 28 pounds … and required 110VAC power.
Now an iPhone or iPad can run circles around both of them without even sporting a keyboard, trackpad or mouse (I can hear my granddaughter asking me in a few years, “what’s a computer mouse?”). After reading the post again, I even found myself pondering the “very cool at the time” Palm Treo that I used to take the photos!
