Old Selectors and New computers

Is it wrong that I see the following

And burst into laughter? I swear, I laugh every time I see it.


Early prototypes
At least three prototypes were unveiled for Android at the Mobile World Congress on 12 February 2008. One prototype at the ARM booth displayed several basic Google applications. A ‘d-pad’ controls zooming of items in the dock with a relatively quick response.[citation needed]
A prototype at the Google IO conference on May 28, 2008 had a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor and a Synaptics capacitive touchscreen and used the UMTS cellular standard. It had a 128 MB of RAM and 256 MB of flash.[citation needed]

I’m sure you know where I got the quote from. But take a look at those numbers: 528MHz? 128MB RAM? That’s as good as or better than computers ten years ago. I think the screens are getting to be VGA, now, too.
So there you go. I’d love to take one of those things back in time and casually pull it out as geeks are gushing about their latest-and-greatest 400MHz processors.

Oh, and another thing? Chrome has beaten out Opera in market share, and it’s only a few months old.
