Well, some advances have helped both patients and medical professionals – others, not so much. And handheld learning devices? I’m not even gonna go there.

“If our bodies functioned like computers, we’d be extinct” is one of my favorite quotes from an interview. See the whole thing in the article What’s Good About Computer Viruses?
