I'll ask you all to be optimistic for a moment here:

What other type of electronic gets better over time other than the computer? And I mean measurably better, by leaps and bounds. What other thing is like that other than the human?


And I don't mean better over iterations or version of the physical thing. I'm talking a single individual manufactured item. Eg: A single PinePhone.

@brandon I suppose anything with "software" that can be upgraded.

Software in quotes because I guess things like organizations can get better over time as they develop structure and streamline processes.

Even something like a car can get better over time depending on where you land on the ship of Theseus paradox ⛵
