By now you realize that this computer is really not a computer in the true sense of the word. It is one of the most advanced abacuses in the world. This device actually has been in use for several thousands of years, and can be very accurate. The Amish should be given credit for being able to maintain a very simple lifestyle in this rush and hurry world where money seems to be the motivating factor. Maybe we should all trade in our computers for abacuses and learn to slow down. It wouldn’t make Bill Gates very happy, but we would all probably live a lot longer. Warped rating: 6.5.”
