I remember when that came out. I was a kid and liked it to the point I bought the 45. I suppose I played it too often, because my mother told me to stop playing it, saying it was "disrespectful".

Today we would say that she was being "politically correct", lol.

If only. He outlived his prediction.
"Microprocessor architects report that since around 2010, semiconductor advancement has slowed industry-wide below the pace predicted by Moore's law." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore's_law
It's long been understood it could not continue indefinitely.
It can not be otherwise, since atomic diameter is finite and non-zero. (222 pm for silicon)
Also: "the capital cost of a semiconductor fabrication plant also increases exponentially over time"
