The Cost of Complexity

In the past, the devices we used were a lot simpler, and we expected to know how they worked. For example, people used to service and repair their own cars before they became loaded with onboard computers. When I was a kid, my grandfather had a collection of vintage cars that he would keep running in his spare time. He would complain about how finicky some of them were, but they pretty much all ran, and he was by no means a professional mechanic.
