I once heard from R' Menashe Reisman that before the Mabul there existed advanced technologies (he had a mekor), and I think he explicitely mentioned cell phones. So not soooo far-fetched...

Did he happen to mention if they had Verizon wireless service?

That picture is מזוייף מתוכו!

Looks like it was taken in מצרים, as evidenced by the hieroglyphs, which only came much later.

Additionally, that picture ain't from Cheder. My cheder boys don't know the ABC, and by the time they figure it out on their own, they're too old for Parsha Pictures.

But one thing to remember is that Gates has given away a lot of his fortune to charity. Gates’ current net worth is $93.3 billion and over the past 20 years he has given away stock and cash that would be worth about $60 billion today That would put his net worth at more than $150 billion if he had kept it.

And

...fortunes can also be measured as a share of national GDP. And by that measure, Rockefeller's fortune was the equivalent of nearly 2 percent of total U.S. economic output at the time. To have the same share today, with a U.S. GDP of over $18 trillion, Bezos would need to be worth more than $350 billion.
