which may reduce the required time -- otherwise, you simply forget
about the new technologies and stick with the old ones.

Maybe.

Looks like you think a bit too much in "black and white" categories:

  Even when I do not know many details, I can still provide some hints.

  To stay with your "car" example: When I hear that someone wants a new
  car, I can predict that he will probably at least need 3.000 dollars
  even when he did not yet specify precise details about the wanted car.
  Of course, if his car should win the Formular One competition, this
  will quickly get 30 million dollars.
