New things cannot come back to back non-stop. You've got to give people the time to digest these new technologies. While existing technology matures, it's a chance for other areas (in connection to it) to grow. Humanity and Technology should grow together hand in hand, not racing each other.
I hope you do give your stomach time to digest your food? ;)
@AZskibum, you're right. And I think we are all feeling that way. In an interesting twist of things, though, in writing this story, it really dawned on me that the smartphone platform battle itself may be winding down.
