With companies offering greater innovation including software it seems to be both a blessing and a curse.  The blessings result from a reasonable world view.  The real world view perhaps suggests otherwise.  With the world in turmoil, it is not inconceivable that, given that the nuclear clock has been moved forward to 30 seconds before midnight (nuclear war) is now very possible.  Some say that America is planning a first strike, and given that the Russian nukes and defenses are four generations more advanced that America's, it's likely that America will likely suffer some serious damage, especially among the coastal cities.  Also given that some of the nukes are designed to knock out electronic systems, would it not be wise to keep an old pre-software beater, should you survive the initial attack. 

It seems that one cannot depend upon either politicians or corporations to influence backing away from the brink of nuclear war because they are part of the military industrial complex and therefor reluctant to back away from profitable governmental contracts.  So again, although likely pollyanna positivism, would it not be a good idea to keep an old beater in good mechanical condition?  Just sayin'.
