"A cheap and simple device, which might be carried in one's pocket may then be set up anywhere on sea or land, and it will record the world's news or such special messages as may be intended for it. Thus the earth will be converted into a huge brain...the system will have a virtually infinite working capacity and immensely facilitate and cheapen the transmission of intelligence."

Nikola Tesla (1904)

Wowsa!

I recently read a book you might enjoy called "A Computer Called Leo", which was about the first computer (being a thing with vacuum tubes the size of a house) designed for private commercial usage and not for the government and military. It was a British made initiative for Lyons Tea Shops, of all places. A great read.
