When indeed? I am going to take a wild guess and say “just around the corner” or maybe “within the next 5 years” or “for sure within a decade”, how about “no doubt before the end of the century”, or “it’s a can’t miss this millenia no take backsies.” It actually is a question of when. The answer seems to be whenever, but it is never today. It’s never today.
