I realized recently that only Americans over the age of 35 call them “cell phones,” everyone else calls them “mobiles.” That’s because we first encountered mobile devices as cellular telephones that were absurd bricks roughly the size of your head. And yet, we still considered them an amazing luxury. The Verge has a great interview with the father of the cell phone today. Talk about overestimating what a technology can do in the short-term, but wildly underestimating it in the long-term. For decades, cell phones only revolutionized voice; now mobile devices are revolutionizing everything. [Source: The Verge.]
