I just spent an hour in nerd heaven because I’d stumbled upon a television show about the Apollo Navigation Computer.

I marvel about once a week that my cell phone has more computer capability than the computer that they used on the spaceship. Boggles my mind. It’s so easy to take this stuff for granted – and such a tragedy that we do so.
What piece of technology still amazes you after all the years? And, more importantly, why does it amaze you?
