    What? He said there are only 150 factories on this planet that produce smart phones… imagine if ww 3 comes, they will be bombed in minutes and in five years we don't have any phones left except some random banana phone in the closet

    If the earth exists like 3000 years or smth why is technology invented so late then? Why was technology like iphone smart tvs ipads and all that crap not invented like 500 years ago? But now? Did something happend to the world that maybe all the technology and people were vanished so we had to start all over again? This is so confusing.
