x86 is probably going the same way as Sparc. x86 is powerful but too powerful to be used on mobile devices and doesn't scale very well on desktops when it comes to parallel processing.

Intel continues to work on reducing power consumption of x86 while retaining performance.
ARM continues to work on increasing performance while retaining low power consumption.
I'm hoping for everybody to win.

But knowing to not shoot selfies of yourself being a total jackass is something that can make some sense a lot earlier than 18. If some 15 year old can know enough not to drop his pants in front of his grandmother or in front of his classroom at school, he already has what it takes to know not to do it online.

Mod this up. (I've already posted in the thread, so I can't.)
