2016 the year of technologic absurdity. Like in the movie Idiocracy.
In my opinion there's some engineers over-acting things, killing flies with bazokas.
I'm still using 2006 machines to do the same things back then.
But suddendly, if you fall into the update-mania sindrome, one could easily end up with a machine that's unable to do the same things 10 years ago.
Youtube is not delivering holographic 4D frames yet, IT'S THE SAME logic.
We're overacting things, bringing complexity to the code just for the sake of it and
making applications really slow, to do the same things with a very little added value within 10 years.
