FaceTime patch for iOS coming

You’ll need at least 50% power, or plugged in and WiFi enabled.

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

Aruz,

 

Is a smartphone a computer?

 

https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001540.htm

 

If it has a hexacor processor A11cpu, allows browsing, word processing, etc.Multiple windows open.Biometric or fingerprint readers.

 

Best guess on topic, or has been since iPhone 4, they call them smart for a reason.

 

Security patches, updates to 64-bit operating systems, bugs, malware, ransomeware, etc. Digital certificates.

 

So yeah, I’d say it sure sounds like a computer - both for smartphones and pads.

 

wasn’t that long ago that Windows phone were sold, Android is still a debatable smart device to me, updates on same os, are slow and far between manufacturers.

Can I write and run C++ or Fortran programs, e.g., image processing programs, on them?  I have been doing this on computers since 1965 (punch cards and blinking lights back then, ha, ha). Any machine that I can't use in that manner is not a computer. 

 

So, if I am called "smart," does that make me a computer?

Aruz,

 

You have 3 years on me, since 1968🤮 here.

 

ARPANet , BB&N still have nightmares in LiSP or I guess now it would be AutoCad?

 

Mainframes then we’re considered computers and had as much processing power as my first  smartphone in 4 rooms.

 

Or my first Thinkpad or my daily luggable TI Silent 700 with no memory, pure data terminal and 30 lb. thermal matrix paper roll.

 

If it has a CVE#, Or a NVD it’s a Computer.
