Moore’s Law states (roughly) that the speed of computers doubles every two years, and he’s been more or less on the money. Today I introduce a corollary to Moore’s Law, which I expect to come to be known as Matt’s Corollary:
Except for the first couple days of ownership, the perceived speed of computers, over time, remains a constant (and a slow one at that).
My shiny new MacBook has become dog slow. Some people claim it’s the fact I didn’t do a clean install. Niall probably figures it has something to do with the 25+ apps I run at the same time. But you and I now know the truth – Matt’s Corollary.
