Earliest Signs of Advanced Technology Found

If we understand Technology as the study of techniques to ease the way for man, then technology actually goes back well beyond the Iphone. That date now pushed back to 1.76 million years before the Iphone. We have come a long way baby.

Speaking of advanced technology, has anyone dug up the Iphone 5 launch date? I mean Apple must be booking some Ad's or renting a launch space or something by now.

Earliest Signs of Advanced Tools Found

One hallmark of Homo erectus, a forerunner of modern humans, was his stone tools, an advanced technology reflecting a good deal of forethought and dexterity. Up to now, however, scientists have been unable to pin a firm date on the earliest known evidence of his stone tool-making.

A new geological study, being reported Thursday in the journal Nature, showed that tools from a site near Lake Turkana in Kenya were made about 1.76 million years ago, the earliest of their ilk found so far. Previous dates were estimates ranging from 1.4 million to 1.6 million years ago.
