“With these new devices, a dual-core processor isn’t why people buy them. They buy them because it can be a fantastic book. Or game. Or browser. They buy it because of what it does. That’s interesting, because it means technology is evolving away from a focus on the technology itself. Before, we wanted to know precisely how it worked, and what processor and amount of RAM it had, but now that stuff is better locked up inside, a secondary detail. Like physical tools, we aren’t concerned with how technologically advanced it is, but rather how well it fulfills its task.”—
I want to print this out, roll it up, and swat “My Android phone is better because it has a dual-core Tegra processor blah blah blah” people in the face.
