    I think that is a funny, odd, and totally obvious story that has been repeated over and over again since the beginning of time (at least since the beginning of computing electronics).

    Today's smartphones are already super computers when compared to computers of just a few years ago. The simplest of automobiles have more computing horsepower under the hood than used to put a man on the moon.

    When Watson fits in your hand, it will no longer be the super computer of the day. That will be in that master bedroom vacated by the underpowered, nearly obsolete, Watson. ;)
