The losers, and there'll be many, will dawdle along thinking the 1960's will go on forever.
Ask WinTel about Mobile.
Nokia and the Basic Fone. And on and on and on.
One guy just KNEW 7nm was a forgone conclusion:
"My personal take on this issue is that people also were doubting whether a 7 nm-based chip would be created, but technology and scientific advancement never ceases to prove our future predictions wrong. I'm reminded of an infamous quote by Charles H. Duell who was commissioner of the US patent office in 1899 who said: "everything that can be invented has been invented." That quote is an example, though an exaggerated one, of just how unstoppable human innovation and exponential technological growth is. I looked it up and the number of patents issued in the US in 1899 was 70,075 and the number issued in 2014 was 1,107,650. And remember that is in the US alone. My point with all this is that technological barriers rarely hold for long and manufacturing for 7 nm chips will most definitely find a way."
I'll stick with him and the innovators with new techniques and materials.

China this week announced an AI-powered unmanned police station will open in one of its capitol cities, proving once again that no other country quite embraces artificial intelligence like it does.The station appears to be designed with driver and vehicle related matters in mind, making it more like a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) than a cop shop. It will provide driver’s examinations via simulator, registration services, and feature advanced face-scanning technology developed by Tencent, according to a report from Chinese financial paper Caijing Neican.
