It's not clear how far computing performance has come in roughly two millenia. Past progress was exponential, but we are already hitting problems. Nonetheless, in the Honorverse you could probably fit a 21st century data center into a pack of cigarettes, both in terms of datastorage and computing. If you really wanted to. Many consumer devices would exchange the computing power they don't need for cheaper manufacturing and longer battery life.
The "internet" landscape of the honorverse hasn't been …Read more >
