I am thinking about textbooks in technical fields, whose titles are things like "modern computer technology". These books may have been written many decades ago, so their contents very much do not reflect anything "modern" anymore. Imagine such a book where there is a line like this:
"Modern hard drives can store megabytes of information and are so small that they can be lifted by a single person"
To us this sounds painfully archaic, but at the time the book was written that was really a marvel.
I was wondering if there is a word that could be used to future proof such writing, without using the word "modern" or "state of the art", which will become obsolete very fast in certain fields.
