Hmmm. The new future... just like the old future ?

At least, after decades of hearing about how germanium was going to replace silicon in the next generation, and then, the next, ad infinitum....

There seems to be a broad consensus now that germanium transistors are definitively better... in fuzz pedals.

Otherwise <crickets chirping>.

The incremental improvements delivered to us by the academic-corporate research-industrial standards coordinating complex... do seem to ensure you can earn a degree in a related engineering field and have it not be made obsolete for an entire career... /s
