I sometimes feel wonder how splendid current smartphones are.
I grew up using old MS-DOS computer and old mainframe computer using at university about 1985- with 8.5 inch floppy disk. So compared these things, revolution of current IT technology is splendid.
My first computer(NEC VX21) were around 1MIPS, and my smartphone(LG G2 01f) is around 1000MIPS. When I was graduate student at 1989-1990, our lab introduced SUN sparkstation 2 and it was around 30MIPS. We used it for simulating our model of network and we are very excited this workstation's high spec.
So now I always carry 30 workstations I used to use !
