One year in a dog’s life is about seven years in a man’s life. With technology, the same principle applies, only with double the lever. I learned about this concept when my oldest boy was being condescending about my laptop (thís very laptop, I wrote most of my Bites on it). “You know that one year for a computer is fifteen years for a human?” Me: “Is that so?” Cosmo: “No, I just made that up. But is is still true”, and he then he drives his point home: “Your laptop is about six years old, see how unbelievably slooooow it is”.
