@Sheepdoll "Are we too dependent on such tools such as Matlab, and pSpice"
Try this one: I asked two engineering managers - one HW and one SW, what they thought of the concept of going on line to find canned solutions. I was astonished that both of them answered very positively about that prospect. My response: then why bother hiring/paying engineers? Just find the most resourceful and computer savy seekers of information you can find for min wage. They're reply: And then what? Hmmmm.
