I doubt many here think that technology is at a standstill, he says typing away on a throwaway netbook on a wireless internet connection, both things that 10 years ago were far from ubiquitous. The only place we see large scale technology freezes is F1, bizarrely.
On the flipside, Windows XP still lingers on outside of the home.
You can add the military to F1 for technology freezes. A platform might be state of the art when designed but by the time it is delivered and in service, it will likely no longer be state of the art and may in fact be obsolete. I would cite the F-35 as an example but I don't think that was ever state of the art and also hasn't been delivered yet.
