OK - I had the impression that the idea was to make mobile phones "smarter and smarter" until they are fully computers with way-too-small monitors.

As it turns out, whilst I was distracted with life, the battle turned and went the other way as, in fact, it was the computers that are, instead, becoming phones.[^]

Once upon a time, when a journal "Language" came out, they gave an example of a simple program written in many languages just as a comparison (cube integers 1 through 10 via one function call, or equivalent). The title of the article was, "To a nail, everything is a hammer" - and now I see, expressed in the current mentality-vernacular, every device is a telephone.


        OH BRAVE NEW WORLD!
