The pace of technological development/innovation in consumer electronics is slowing and I don't like it.
Still two years away.
Actually, I think that the pace of technology as a whole is still going strong, however, priorities have shifted-- batteries are (rightly) the new focus, as well as RF data communications (wifi, cellular) and compact computing technologies ('smart' phones, tablet computers, wearables). Desktop computing and gaming is no longer an up-and-coming platform, and so we will see fewer new graphics cards, hard drives, and such.
Games are likely to become more platform-agnostic, which is good, as long as that platform runs Apple, Microsoft, or Android operating systems and will be connected to the internet. Standalones are on the wane.
