Quest for knowledge
Human beings basically haven’t evolved much in the last 20,000 years but we have learned how to arm ourselves with knowledge at an ever-increasing rate. My iPhone, the 3GS, has 64 times the memory of my first computer, is much faster and in practical terms has an unlimited number of functions and applications. Even if I don’t hold a massive database of information in my cranium I know how to get it, and a mobile device has oodles of information literally at your fingertips.
All The Countries if a free iPhone application that gives you plenty of information on every country: population, area, leader, capital, languages, religions, holidays and a great economic summary are just a few of the many things you can access. The application is easy to use and each country name is displayed with the national flag. A quick tap and you can see your chosen country on the world map. The pro version All The Countries Pro ($0.99) also shows detailed information about geography, government and history. This little app kicks world butt!
