Considering that 'hardware' was conceived using 'software', I wasn't that surprised, however I do see a shift in the development industry where software integrated MCUs become the norm.

60% of resource investment to software

In doing this story, I was particularly surpised by the statistic from UBM: 60% of resources invested go to software; 40% to hardware. Curious if others are surpised by this.
