Suppose that in 1997 you had a very difficult problem to solve, so difficult that it would take Deep Blue, the supercomputer that beat the best human chess player in the world, 18 years to solve, what should you do? You'd do better to let Moore's law do all the heavy lifting and leave Deep Blue alone and sit on your hands from 1997 until just 2 minutes ago, because that's how long it would take the 2013 supercomputer Tianhe-2 to solve the problem. And in 20 years your wristwatch will be more powerful than Tianhe-2.
