The first digital computer ever made, called the ABC had less than a KHz of processing speed, and only performed basic functions; yet it filled up an 1800 sq. foot room. If you fit as many iPhones as possible into an 1800 square foot room, you would be able to store 3456 iPhones. This would mean that you would have 4147.2 GHz processing speed, and 55296 Gigabytes of space. This would cost you 342,144$ to buy all of those iPhones. In today’s time the money that was donated to create the computer was around 83,000$ in today’s time.
