It's the old calculator versus long division thing.

Many schools in many countries don't teach long division basically because calculators exist.
You will get people who will argue that you should learn long division because one day you will get caught without a calculator.

You know the counter why waste so much time learning something that when caught in the situation you could easily fix.

So we invent a drama but wait you have a plane crash on a deserted island and you need to solve the division to save yourself. If only I learned long division I could save myself. What we leave out is you probably didn't learn how to calculate sine and cosine from first principles so we better hope your escape doesn't need trig functions Smile | :)

Neither side will convince the other, it's answer simply becomes just our own personal bias on how we feel about the technological advance.
In vino veritas
