The following is about a chart comparing iPhone (2007) vs. Osborne Executive (1982).
It is comparing weight, size, cost, processing power, memory, software... between the two device.
And in the comparison of "software," Osborne's software is described as "Multiple types, on floppy disks,"
and iPhone's software is described as "Multiple to start."
I'm not quite sure of these two expressions. What are they saying?
They're probably referring to what applications were available to run on the device. Maybe the Osborne could run different applications, but you had to load them from floppy, where with the iphone, you just have to click on an icon.
