Funnily enough, a large bit of homeless crime can be put down to this motive exactly. Hard to beat three square meals a day and a roof over your head when you've got no where else to go...

A real world example of "dead" tech.... nuclear weapons. There is a concern in the US that there will be a knowledge gap in nuclear weapon design in a few years. There haven't been any new major projects in decades so the retiring/dying developers have not passed their knowledge on to younger generations. Manuals, documentation, and concepts will only get you so far. You don't just go out and build complex tech.
I guess you don't work in tech or finance?

That's funny that you think nuclear tech is dead. And they say the government can't keep secrets... I can tell you from first hand experience that nuclear tech is far from dead; the public just doesn't get to be in the loop with regular updates about it. The government no longer builds and tests full scale weapons, Tsar Bomba showed the folly of that validation path, but nuclear tech is still very much alive and advancing.

Not saying that I know what im talking about but just trying to use common sense.

If data is technically cheaper to transmit; dont they still have significant costs accrued to developing infrastructure and R&D.

Maintaining, yes. Verizon FiOS had relatively steep prices and some severe problems early on, but the prices have come down and the speeds have gone up significantly.

Most of our nuclear testing is done several miles under ground, something very few people are aware of. Our government is very much still working in the nuclear field, just as you have said, it is just kept on the DL.

Yes. Going back to what I said in the last page, data is cheap to transmit. It is getting to the data that is the big problem.
