bigger is always better because there's more.
Difference Engine is way better than a calculator!

Mostly, yes. There's a few exceptions, and to be honest I get a little excited when thinking of future AR platforms.

And expensive.. you forgot to mention expensive Oh well, my 760 SLI will work until benchmarks require upgrades.


I'm waiting for those things to drop prices. They will just you wait.

I bought my 780 when they still cost a premium. I think now they sell for like 600, but mine cost near 800 when I bought it. And it wasn't even an EVGA model, so fuck me.

I think there is too much focus on making items smaller. I wouldn't mind electronics getting smaller if my phones screen stayed the same size and it just had double the amount of hardware.
To make the phone or anything smaller than usable for humans you need VR and the hologram (VR pictures in real life?). An example is the Neuro Linker in Accel World. It is a small item around your neck yet you have large displays (that you can interact with) via holograms and you can play games in VR. It just needs the tech to deliver enough processing power in a very little space (therefore the smaller is better).

Ps. I thought wrong of this thread too... if only the second poster didn't push the thread in this direction

as far as computers go i think its a bad thing. my reasoning behind this is rather simple. As computers become smaller, it becomes harder and harder to build your own and as such you have to rely on companies that for the most part do not have your best interest in mind. It also limits the variance of the types of computers with which you can have access to. Heavy gaming rigs tend to be over priced, imagine having no other alternative then to buy from some company rather then build the machine your self. That would be a nightmare.

But it doesn't just stop there, As things get smaller, you get devices like tablets that pop up, which serve absolutely no purpose. what i mean by this, is that a tablet is not really a piece of technology that is needed in the market so much as its an novelty device. Most smart phones do everything that a tablet can. considering all tablets use the same operating systems as smart phones it isnt a big deal to make a sweeping statement like this. And while i own a tablet my self simply because i like the convenience, thats all they afford, they dont give you anything unique to them aside from a larger screen then a cell phone.

Until the technology of cellphones and micro-computers catch up with larger-desktop machines, this will be true. Once they do catch up to one another, it will then become redundant to own a desktop and the only people who will buy them in the end will be people who are like me who want to have something they personally built.

So yeah in some ways it would be nice to be able to carry around my desktop if it was the size of my cellphone or tablet, but at the same time the lack of being able to upgrade of such a product does bother me in the sense that when you want more features you will have to buy a new one rather then augment the one you already have.

I think size is less of an issue than visible-ness. I'm reminded of many science fiction stories where everything is very high tech but the devices, of any size, blend into their surroundings. A computer that looks like or is built into a piece of furniture. Monitors hidden behind sliding walls or pictures or mirrors. Cellphones that are part of the clothing. Etc, etc, etc.

Right now technology is a "status symbol" so people want it to stand out. But I'd rather have my tech vanish until it's needed.

For things like computer parts yes, but for devices with touchscreen, the small screens make them a bit difficult to use for those with bad eyesight or large hands.

Is the decreasing size of electronic devices a good thing?


I thought the heading was referring to something different and had me puzzled

Smaller devises are better with few exceptions like TV's. Less space and easier to carry
