Moore Law

This morning at breakfast I was reading the last "Enjeu les echos" issue about "coaching, how you should optimize your computer outcome". It's explained that conjonction of the Morre Law and competition, the computer system exceed generally the need of the company.
What's that Moore's law?? indeed, it's well known.
Read this and you'll say ..ahhhh!!!! yeeessss !!! : Moore's law - An empirical observation stating that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every 18 months. Outlined in 1965 by Gordon Moore (born 1925), co-founder of Intel refers to the rapidly continuing advance in computing power per dollar cost.
Now, let's use this information to show off at night parties, and enlarge the suject : cite Moore's law to refer to the rapidly continuing advance in computing power per dollar cost.

To impress durably, some other eponymous laws , but some are very diffucult to place, I've rated it (1 easy o 10 maximum difficulty) and send me your score !!
- Finagle's law - Generalized version of Murphy's law : this one is rated 5/10, very difficult because you have to place the Murphy's law first.
explain : fully named Finagle's Law of Dynamic Negatives and usually rendered "anything that can go wrong, will".
- Murphy's law - this one is rated 1/10, really easy, even with your mum. Most commonly formulated as "if anything can go wrong, it will", less commonly "If it can happen, it will happen".
Sturgeon's law - "Ninety percent of everything is crud." this one is rated : 2/10 . Difficulty is to find depressed listerners to have success.
- Maximum argument with a Davos-like economist if you throw out the Say's law - attributed to economist Jean-Baptiste Say and contrasted to Keynes' Law. Difficulty is 8 because you have to read some books before arguing. But probably impressing.
- With a commercial-assles audience, give the Pareto principle : States that for many phenomena 80% of consequences stem from 20% of the causes. Difficulty is rated 4, because you have to endure an commercial assles audience to score with this law.
- and last one for today, which is very difficult, Hanlon's razor - A corollary of Finagle's law (see above) , normally taking the form "Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.". This one is rated 9 if you can score in your own company, rate 10+++ if with your boss, because it's difficult to find people who accept their stupidity and do not summon "faith" ot "malice" or "bad luck"in what happens.
