Welcome to the future! If you mean what I think you mean, then I agree. The "glory days" are gone. There are less analog designs being done, and they are replaced with more complex digital systems. Some of these are better, but none are as elegant as pure analog. I also think the "glory days" of the WWW are also gone. There are simply less (none) HTML only sites being created, and they are getting replaced with..well everything they can cram into your face. Welcome to the future!

Why about 100 foam plastic balls of orange color with a plastic orange flag and LED light (blinking for 3-4 months after contact with water) cannot be placed inside the fuselage on an aircraft which costs hundreds of millions? The size could be of a tennis ball, an additional weight and cost almost zero.

This is a great thought. If something like this works it would save tens of millions.
