It’s pretty easy to take an existing piece of hardware that has proven itself over the years and slap it on something new hoping that it is still advanced enough to serve the purpose it was meant for.

Of course it’s a great way to save money on R&D but there will come a time when the old standby won’t perform as well as it used to and you’re going to be standing with the proverbial “foot in the mouth” because someone else has eclipsed you and is now standing at the top of the hill.
