However here's another reason: it's simple. Here's how the reasoning goes.
Technology doesn't just become more complex over time. Instead it progresses to a certain point, then there is a quantum shift as something newer, simpler and more effective comes along. This then gets more and more complex until the cycle starts again. If you don't believe me consider these two technologies: steam engines and computers.
From superheaters to superconductors
The first steam engines were so simple you could make a model of one yourself with a tin can and a
few pipes. However by the time the golden age of steam was reached, a hundred odd years later, they were incredibly complex, with superheaters, turbopumps and complex chimneys (called 'ejectors') and so on. They were magnificent creations, but very expensive to maintain and getting them ready first thing in the morning took hours.
Then along came the diesel engine, which you just switched on when you wanted it, and they were history. Complex had given way to simple.
By contrast, look at the engine on an electric car. It has about half a dozen moving parts. That's it. Simple.
It is time for simplicity again.
