Why My Computer Is Slow
In economics, the Jevons paradox [...] occurs when technological progress increases the efficiency with which a resource is used (reducing the amount necessary for any one use), but the rate of consumption of that resource rises because of increasing demand.
Wirth's law [...] is a computing adage which states that software is getting slower more rapidly than hardware becomes faster.
Fortunately, there’s Moore’s law. It’s “the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years.”
Unfortunately, Gate’s law and May’s law state that “software efficiency halves every 18 months, compensating Moore’s law.”
