So, people like to make the 'more power than the computers used to land men on the moon' comparison. But what are the specs? There are the onboard computers on the landers and control modules, there are the computers on earth, etc. Anybody know, off the top of their heads, the approximate total memory/storage and operations-per-second we're talking about, cumulatively, how much 'computing power' was behind that whole thing?

I'm curious to see how many simultaneous moon landings I could run with my iPhone. ;;)
