And, in other countries, the "telephone" is now a "cell phone"
or a "keitai" -- a "carry with" information appliance with voice,
music, television, instant messaging, email, web browsing,
cash payments (phone the coffee machine, and have an
freshly brewed latte billed to your phone account), take and
trade photographs, etc.
(Alas, in some of those countries, their curriculum still teaches
Basic Programming as Information Technology :( )
