On Smartphones

Hey Miya, what do you think about smartphones?

Smartphones should have been mobile PC’s. Instead we got gimped computers-made-toys. Take a computer and cut its functionality 1 by 1 until you’re left with a feature whitelist that makes it a safe pseudo-appliance, opposed to hackable PC

A smart toaster is a computer stripped of all functionality except to toast food + WiFi, Bluetooth etc. Smart appliance, dumb computer.

A smart phone is a computer stripped of all functionality except calling, web, FB etc. Smart phone, dumb computer.

Wow, now I truly see. Thanks Miya!
