I get it mixed up with Sturgeon's "The Nail and the Oracle."

I dunno. Clarke told this story as "any technology sufficiently advanced is indistinguishable from magic." It gets bonus points for being the first real singularity tale but it's always struck me as painfully unimaginative.

Fun fact, though: if you ask Siri "Is Entropy Reversible" this is the answer you get.
