There’s this episode of West Wing where a reporter joins the White House press corps. He comments how he was just in Fiji. CJ asks him about it and he describes how he impressed the Bauans by showing them that he could predict the weather with his smart phone.
However, I will say that I’ve used my laptop to show several different people the Google Earth view of their house, and my goodness — they were blown away.
In fact, I was visiting a village today (back on the main island; not Bau), and it came up, “Hey, you didn’t bring your laptop to show these people their village on Google.”
