Chip Makers are the tail wagging the Dog

Why do the chips used in our laptops and others have so many pins attached to them?

Why are they still using Dynamic Ram ?

Why are there so many different power voltages needed and elaborate power distribution ICs needed ?

In this world of 4.5 Gig communications chips some company can’t design a serial fly by wire type interconnect  between computer chips to eliminate all those hundreds of pinouts that have to be meticulously soldered to tiny trouble prone traces on a mindlessly complex motherboard.  This whole thing is MADNESS , it’s crazy. There must be a better way.

I like the KISS principle , “KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID”.
