The last few major applications were cell phones and tablets.  The growth in those has slowed much like the PC era when it no longer was necessary to upgrade to run current software.  Now you can have a desktop PC work perfectly fine for 5-8yrs.  Nothing wrong with that!  The same can be said for many cell phones.  If the manufacturer doesn't do something stupid with is software (or battery, sorry Samsung), there is no reason why you couldn't use a current cell phone for 5yrs.  Continuous crazy growth is unsustainable and bad for the environment as our landfills overflow with last year's tech.
