It's an employment boosting technology.
Many years ago, I worked with a delightful gent who told me his first job as a student was "vavle monkey". That entailed working with one of the original computers back in the '50s, his job being to sit all night in the boiling computer room with a box of valves, ready to leap up and replace any blown valves. He said he could go through a dozen valves in a night, as long as he didn't accidentally electrocute himself in the valve changing process (that could shock you unconcious!). Obviously, Intel is doing the economy a favour and turning the clock back to those good 'ol days, providing employment for thousands as "SSD monkeys" (not to be confused with "tape monkeys", who switch backup tapes for a living).
