Samsung's new folding Smart Phone looks like a phone and a tablet when opened up but with a suggested beginning price of $1900 + who is going to be buying it?  Probably quite a few people, so Samsung hopes.  

It's been said Apple is having difficulty selling it's new iPhone X (10) phones and sales are less then they expected so it will be interesting to see if Apple can match or surpass this feature in a Smart Phone. 

Anymore folks are buying small computers that have phone apps.  What is really mind blowing is to think about the power that is within a person's hand holding one of the newest Samsung or Apple phones compared to the computer that was on the Apollo spaceship that took men to the moon.  There is so many times more power contained in todays' smart phones than was in NASA's capsule that it's amazing to think we made it to the moon and back.  This was during an era when most of the most technical people were still using slide rules.  

What's also crazy is to think in an age when computers are so technical that we haven't been back to the moon yet.  At least they are talking about going back and to establish a permanent base.  What I wonder is if NASA or the government is going to have to pay some poor soul who bought pieces of the moon from a company that was selling them a while back?

Just proves my complaints about the cell wars. I've got a Jitterbug flip
because I like a flip, I've never texted, had it removed so they said.
I can take a photo but I haven't snapped that yet either and I'm not
a member of the social media's personal information sharing mistake.
 
Most months I use no minutes and have never said a word  with it
in my truck but have been driven to both sides of the road by the
cell trolls. So whats the point of all that power in the hands of the
incompetent/immature death threats with a zero attention span
in the drivers seat of a three ton weapon?
 
Facebook has caused more divorce than most people
would've thought.
 
$1900 can buy a lot of that other stuff.

You sound like me. I don't understand people's need to be on their phones 24-7 or to "alert" the entire community when they have a BM. My little "dumb" phone does all that I need it to do. Even old cell phones with no service can still be used to call 911 if kept charged.

With all the technology that is supposed to help us and assist us it's truly not a brave new world but a scary and dangerous one.  I was standing behind a young teen, in line, at Blue Coast Burrito the other day getting my wife some lunch.  I couldn't believe the speed at which she was typing (moving her finger and thumb) messages to someone else.  And JUTU, you got that right, about informing people about their BM because it seems the kids today have to reveal every intricate detail about where they are and what they are doing no matter what it is.  

The other thing I can't get over is the way my grandkids are so taboo about having their photo taken when I, or the wife, just want to get a photo/picture of them but yet they take hundred's of "selfies" and send them to whomever.  I mean irony to the nth degree.  But realize this is where our future leaders are going to be coming from.
