Your reasoning makes sense, since that is also the reason for the prohibition against mixing milk with cow meat.
I don't think I could step back into the stone-age IDE's and features of Java,
Compared to C#? This is how we know you're trolling.
If something came along to replace or reduce programming on the client side, JS usage could shrink quickly.
WebAssembly. It's supported by most major browsers (experimentally) and has a W3C working group ironing out the details.
do you think a law banning having sexual intercourse with your menstruating wife has no motive?
I'm not saying you're wrong, but I'm having trouble thinking of a motive for this one.
The answer is MyCroft
I plan on buying one of these the very soonest I can once they are actually shipping the hardware. Echo is crippled by the many limitations Amazon coded in on purpose -- it's basically something that looks up text matches and does something if it finds one. No language parsing worth a damn. Even so, it's very useful, and within those limits, you can make stuff for it, Amazon's pretty open about it as long as you can set up a secure server (ugh) or use their cloud (double-ugh.) Siri, as per usual for Apple, is a much more closed system, and frankly, it's of no interest at all to me because of that.
Mycroft is completely open source. I have very high hopes for it because of that. I have reams of my own natural language processing code I should be able to plug right in the moment there is a speech-to-text engine I can use directly. Others do as well. Custom apps in the home space, that are actually somewhat smarter than...

I suggest everyone check MyCroft out. Perhaps you'll be as enthused as I. I can hope.
They will eventually become another IBM. I was trying to think of a real tangible product that IBM made and sold just the other day. Do they?
They sell more mainframes now than they did in 1970, believe it or not. One z13 can support 8,000 Linux VMs simultaneously. Cool looking box, too.
How the hell do you reproduce a climate study anyway? Where are the controls?
John Christy has been doing that for over 30 years. For example, he wanted to know if the temperature record was accurate or not. So he developed a secondary way to measure temperature (with satellites). That is one example for you to get the feel, he's done the same thing in other areas of climate science.
In every business scenario I've dealt with, it is simply impossible to protect against every threat and every zero-day exploit that comes down the pipe
A lot of the exploits we've seen haven't been zero-days or complex attacks. They've been low-hanging fruit that would never be left open by an admin like you.
