The first true programmable computer was called Colossus. It was made in 1944 to help decode military ciphers. Made out of thousands of vacuum tubes and filling a room, Colossus was operated by teams of people working in around the clock shifts. Today a smartwatch has more processing power than Colossus.

At the time of the moon landing, NASA used several IBM mainframes costing $3 million apiece. Today a single smartphone has more pure computing muscle than those mainframes.
