Quote of the Day (David Pogue, on Size and ‘The First Rule of Technology’)

“At this point, the first rule of technology should be clear to everyone: as progress marches forward, gadgets get smaller….But… there’s a fly in the truism: some things can’t get smaller forever. You can’t make a microwave oven smaller than the food you put inside. You can’t design a Blu-ray player that’s smaller than the disc it’s supposed to play. And you can’t make a scanner that’s smaller than the pages or photos you want to scan.” —American technology and science writer and TV presenter David Pogue, “Scanning On the Go, Wirelessly,” The New York Times, February 2, 2012
