Although much as I appreciate my phone, I know they can be even more vital for some. Imagine being a potato farmer in a poor region of Kenya.

But in the other direction town B is completely out of potatoes and so they’re being bought at a very high price. But you, my poor Kenyan farmer, don’t know which town has the better price until you travel miles across the desert to both, by which point you’ve run out of money to make the journey. How life-changing would a phone be that could tell you the local market prices and enable you to sell your potatoes for better profit and so be better able to feed your family over the coming week? Genius!
