Why do people refer to those observations as laws? They are trends which last for a while until they stops working. The Ohmic law etc is probably applicable for eternity...Kris

the ohmic law has already lost to the laws of Quantum Mechanics and super conductivity etc

Just joking @iniewski, you're absolutely right though.

I agree always left that the word “laws” was way to overused especially when this “law” actually describes a Goal to the drive market demand by pushing technology

I think people use "laws" out of optimism--they really want to improve our predictive powers and "wish" that they could come up with a black-or-white "law" to help out. Of course, as you say, the world is shades of grey :)

Guys, stop just thinking like engineers. Being able to predict possible change means being able to plan for it. That can have significant impacts on cost predictions, market growth, and investment.

The Higgs Boson was confirmed based upon a statistical observation and now most particle physicists believe the standard model to be accurate. I don't see a problem with claiming something is a law if the statistical analysis supports the claim. Even our own existence is based upon statistical interactions with photons. If you don't believe that, turn off all the light in your bedroom tonight and tell us tomorrow if you could still see yourself in the mirror.

Moore's law is not a law,people don't give a shit about it! it is a trend for the company to follow to make money which in this case flawed due to major miscalculation of not taking into account of the whole semiconductor eco-system.
