"I mean it was bound to happen eventually, being able to communicate long distances without investment in magic, pigeon or radio towers is always going to be seen as a strong advantage for any civilization." Takumi would explain with a simple shrug of his shoulders, there was a reason some things with similar to their old realm and that was because it worked well enough for humanity to survive. From weapons to domesticizing animals for their uses in the everyday life, humans were bound to follow a heavily similar path as it natural with evolution.
"The thing I don't get is the naming being so damn similar to Apple and iPhone. It's like whatever created this universe couldn't think up their own unique name and just copied our universe's phone." That truly was the one thing he couldn't fully understand because how likely was this to happen? A world with an entirely different set of laws and culture had managed to come so close to reinventing the iPhone to the point that Takumi would've called the iLac a Chinese bootleg back in their realm.
Although the topic of computers did raise a valid question, how far would Orange go? Were they working on their version of an iMac right now? Or was their focus on improving the mobile phone first? That was a very good question, the computer came before the cellphone but the phone came before the computer with the only difference between the phone and cellphone being the ability to be mobile with the device thanks to the computers. "It honestly is probably easily doable right now but they haven't considered the usage a computer would get just yet. Mobile phones are easier to advertise because it can save so much time, no more having to walk across town just to find out your friend isn't home."
It was then he'd feel a grin creep on his face as he considered just what exactly he could do with their technical future knowledge. "Instead of trying to beat them to the punch, we should release all the apps we can remember being popular. Imagine it, we could make Facebook and call it Magebook, Twitter could now be Tweeter. We can make a killing off their work without having to worry about the device and it's market trend suddenly changing from what we know. An app or website can move from phone to computer but if we create a computer and it flops because nobody knows what they'd use it for? Well that's a good few money and hours wasted for nothing." The wheels in his head were turning full speed ahead as he considered just how exactly they could take advantage of this once in a life time opportunity they've been provided.
"I mean I don't know about you but creating an app that tracks where you put your finger on the screen to pretend to cut fruit sounds so much easier to do than reverse engineering a combination of technology and magic to create ourselves a computer." Takumi was not a smart man but he had to admit he felt pretty damn smart right now, even if his idea was just to hijack the ideas of everyone smarter than him but the only person who'd ever know is Sojiro. Not like there'd be another Isekai'd person to call them out on it.
