Pretty accurate until he mentioned Bad sectors<=>Failed transistors; not a fast conclusion this computer designer would reach. I design computers that help aircraft fly, we don't even use magnetic media. The failure rate of all of this mechanical and electromechanical stuff is very high. Plus a hard fail of a transistor inside of an integrated circuit "die" would pretty much take the drive or computer down. Solid state (NAND FLASH) "drive mimics" are way more reliable, and costly.

He had me at "entropy," but when he name-dropped "The Last Question" I went wild.  It's my favorite Asimov short story.

yeah i kind of dissagreed with him when he kind of sees everything in one universe and does not think beyond the universe, that if a universe goes pop, a new one is birthed, since everything in nature is recycled and re-used from stars to galaxies and including universes with what stuff they made of.
