Tired, old computer cliches that just won’t die

Reading an article today from Frank X. Shaw about the D11 conference I came across this:

Today, Sheryl Sandberg made a similar point when she noted that she had a computer in her pocket with more power than the computer that brought Apollo to the moon. And of course it was a phone. 🙂

Can’t someone come up with a comparison that doesn’t include the computer that brought Apollo to the moon?  The last time someone landed on the moon was 1972.  A lot of computers since then have been more powerful, even handheld ones.  It’s a tired, old cliche.
