You might tell them that tombstones are obsolete technology (stone age), 
but nobody has managed to find a more appropriate one for that purpose. 
The attempts to replace them with an iPhone app appear to have failed up 
to now!
The issue is never to use the most modern technology, but the most 
appropriate one.
If their programmers are unable to cope with an appropriate technology, 
but only with the latest one, they'll become useless, as soon as the 
latest technology is replaced by the next whatever.

However keep in mind that using an appropriate technology not widely 
used, has its advantages: you beat the competition of all those who are 
using the latest and inappropriate, because you'll provide a better 
result at a lower cost.
