Computers are great things that solve so many problems so quickly that wouldn't exist if there weren't any computers.


What impresses me the most, when watching something like The Extraordinary Genius of Albert Einstein - Full Documentary HD - YouTube is how people used to solve problems 1) without computers and 2) by thinking.

Nowadays, it seems like, instead of thinking deeper about the problem that needs to be solved, we reach for Visual Studio, SQL Server, etc., and hack together a bandaid solution.
