A 70-year-old man who spent his childhood in war - torn singapore, listening to only fixed telephones and transistor radios,00 has bought a iPad Mini tonight.
He is sitting next to me, fumbling with the magic of a modern tablet conceived by a team led by an Afghan child fostered to loving couples and raised to love tech and what it can do for others.
We are drinking tea in a cafe headquartered in Seattle, in casual Western clothes made in Thailand.
I can hardly stifle the smile that fades onto my lips as he asks me how to add GMail to his life.
Truly peculiar times. #strangeWorld
