Corporate Douchbaggery!

Mr. Moffett may be demonstrating a form corporate douchbaggery. Mommy I want it now. He apparently wants instant return on investment. He forgets that in the good old days of electromechanical central offices the deprecation cycle was 40 Years. In the early 80's some baby bells mothballed their electromechanical central offices and continued to deprecate them on the 40 year cycle, while replacing them with digital central offices because the maintenance cost on a digital C.O. is so low. On the other hand he may have something because most hardware and software become technologically obsolete long before they wear out.

A lot of people who came of age in the 1980's have this same instant gratification (almost spoiled brat) philosophy.

Not all of the generation, not all, but many....
