Perhaps they shouldn't have taken it so literally and instead called it "Moore's Rule of Thumb, give or take
Because obviously all it takes is a few nukes or a Carrington class Solar Storm to set us back significantly.
Or people could grow lazy, unproductive, and lose their motivation to innovate. Etc.
All sorts of reasons why it's not an actual "Law" but rather more of like a "Suggested Guideline
for inference and projection purposes".
Besides, the wiki on it says :
Moore's law is the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles
approximately every two years
Very similar; closely resembling:
So it's like in religion, when you take a suggestion to an extreme it becomes unrealistic.
Well this particular "Law" isn't realistic in a completely literal understanding.
It's "Approximated" with "Reality". You can create "Simulations" with it.
BTW- Thanks for the thread OP, it's always good to discuss these new emerging technologies and their potentials.
