I think maybe you're on the wrong website, you don't seem to be interested in new discoveries. You might be happier with a site which concentrates on something like "new products coming out this year."
Many of us enjoy reading about new discoveries, knowing that not every promising new discovery will lead instantly to a mass marketed product. (If it ever does.) Every time there's a story about research on improving solar panels or battery efficiency there's always people complaining that they never see these things coming to market, ignoring the steady improvements that we see in both over time. For every story about improving ranges of electric vehicles there's someone who says it's useless because it doesn't meet their use case.
If you really are an old guy think about all the progress you've seen in your lifetime. It didn't happen all at once, but we've sure come a long way. My first computer had 48 kb of ram, 5 1/4" floppies as the only storage, and I used a Model 33 Teletype as a printer. It was a home built Southwest 6800, for those old enough to know what that was.
