Newt Gingrich Can't Work Out What His Phone Is

"Here at Gingrich Productions, we've spent weeks figuring out," ponders Newt Gingrich. "What do you call this?" It's a phone, Newt. "But think about it. If it's taking pictures, it's not a cellphone. If you can get Wikipedia or go to Google, that's not a cellphone." Sigh.


Newt is clearly puzzled by the shiny black rectangles that we all carry around with us. What are these things? Cameras? Computers? Network access points? Phones? It's all too much to take in. Fortunately, Newt wants your suggestions about what these curious devices should be called. Go easy on him? [Newt Gingrich via Gothamist via Verge]

I actually watched the entire thing - and Newt has an idea - (I know this is alien to the liberal kneejerks who will automatically throw out the baby with the bathwater just because it's Newt) This is not political - What will we call our smart phones in the future? They are no longer just phones. Please watch the entire thing before jumping to any conclusions. You may have the answer he is looking for.
