Daily One Inch Button - Micro Processor

Ah, the microprocessor. Without it, we would still have massive rooms full of computer parts that would barely be able to do in the matter of a few months what my Blackberry is able to do in a few minutes. Who would have thought that processing could get smaller and smaller yet faster and faster? I imagine that there were plenty of science fiction / fantasy writers in days gone by that dreamed up computers that would fit in your handbag but just could not fathom how they would possibly work.
