WOW...or Ouch....or the A Word
This is frankly, please forgive the term, awesome. [owww]
This little box contains virtually an entire human life.
Over fifty years of daily writing.
Favorite music spanning five centuries. Maybe more, as I don’t know what century the Gregorian chants date from.
Over thirty thousand photographs spanning four centuries.
Little color sound movies, lasting from a few seconds to ten minutes, from a dog chasing a ball to airliners landing (barely) in a 40 knot crosswind in Germany.
And all of this used less than 15% of the available space.
In its former form, it occupied at least three large rooms.
