Why not push yourself to evolve?

IEEE Spectrum
Capacitors. Open up your computer and they stick out like rocks on a sandy beach. They’re the one kind of electronic device that never made it to Lilliput. If they finally obeyed Moore’s Law by squeezing themselves down to the microscale, it would make life a lot easier for electronics engineers. With tiny but powerful capacitors you could make cheaper, even tinier cardiac pacemakers and computers.
