Personally I don't even believe this. For once, it's too early to actually know if this is the case at all. Is there any scientific basis for assuming this will happen? Or is it just theory?
And besides, for us 2075 isn't really relevant anyway, so I'm not too worried 😜
IIRC they said that the actual silicon the ICs are made out of degrade like that over time, but again who would know until the 2070's when the first silicon ICs DO turn 100...
But didn't they also say cdrom's would be able to hold their data for more then 10 years? And wasn't it common knowledge that floppies were so unreliable, being able to read data from a floppy that hadn't been used for 15 years was practically impossible?
Wasn't Intel going to get Netburst up to 10Ghz?
Weren't we all gonna be using VR glasses by the end of the century?
Wheres my flying car???
The thing is, all kinds of things may be said, but I'm always sceptical when I hear something like this. Usually it turns out not to be true anyway.
