Well, Ichi is actually right in this instance. What you originally said really didn't bare any relevance to what Emoriam posted, at least in the intended sense he was putting it.

I phrased the comment pretty poorly.
But it is relevant.
Did you not read my edit? This is what I meant:
"as I clarified in a comment further down: the quad core is a pretty insignificant invention, especially compared to the light bulb."
"Blizzard spoke thus; Thou shalt not BM. And the players replied Nay, I shall Play my hand with Lethal already on the board. And so Blizzard sent unto them this Brawl of Yogg, As a lesson for their sins of Pride and Greed, for he is the Prophet of Madness and RNG. On that day, the tavern descended into an era of chaos and darkness, until the weekend passed and everyone forgot all about it. Amen. Book of SMOrc, Verse 20, Chapter 4." - Feam T

If what he said was actually about the comparison of inventions, then I might agree, but he is not. The main point of his comment was quite clearly on how long this woman had lived as is the topic of this thread.

emoriam: "She lived in three different centuries thus in a time in which the bulb used to be an insane invention and in a time in which mobile phone devices carry quad-core processors."
He used the two to signify great changes, right?
So my point that "the quad core is a pretty insignificant invention" should be relevant, no?

We should make a thread about the inventions throughout the ages to keep him away from this thread so we can actually talk about the old bag.

She lived through the invention of the fly-swatter to the invention of world's thinnest condom, think about that!

I guess we'll all have to start eating sushi.
Thanks Emikadon for the sig!

xIchi and Searz this really should not be a topic for heated debate. Like really guys, show some civility. >_>

If you want to marvel at anything regarding smartphones then marvel at the package. It's a package with a high-quality screen with small borders, reasonable amount of compute power, the ability to establish a high-speed connecttion to a global network through a variety of radio frequencies and methods, storage capable of holding vast quantities of data, microphone, speaker, GPS with triangulation support, accelerometer, gyroscope, light sensor, proximity sensor, temperature sensors, magnetic field sensor, pressure sensor and of course two cameras one of which is usually very good for the size. And all of this fits in the palm of your hand. THAT is amazing. The fact that they have four cores? It's pretty insignificant in comparison.

For what it's worth, I think this is an excellent point, though your original argument seems fairly fruitless since Emoriam was just pointing out that things have changed a lot in this one woman's lifetime. He could just as easily have said "and now most people have personal computers that can fit in their pockets" or something.

Normally here's where I'd ask everyone to get back on topic, but apparently there has only been one on-topic post since the beginning of the thread. :/

If you guys would rather discuss the minutia of mobile devices, I don't really care that much, but please keep it respectful.

Edit: Oops, missed Foxy's post, so I guess that's two on-topic posts. Good work Foxy. :P

ooph - It's derailing like this that makes me avoid posting in the off-topic forum haha.
I was born in 1994... I wonder if I'll be able to live through 3 different centuries as well. With the rate at which progress is happening in STEM, I could write an autobiography on what it was like to experience history, and describe what 'progress' means to me
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!
