    "Smartphone Cameras Will Be Superior to SLRs by 2024" - Sony

    Another change is, and this is just my opinion, these days majority of pics are viewed on smartphone screens which are smaller (than computer monitors); unlike in the past when pics were viewed mostly on computer monitors.

    What is the average demography of TE members?

    It was on a custom built system, dedicated word processor. Testing was on a emulator built by HP. I also worked in 'IBM assembly language' for mainframes. And the first Intel processors, 8086 I think.
