Good observation naperlou.  It use to be that people who bought electronic products knew the details - speed, size, etc.  Now it has advanced enought that they don't even know what have those values mean anymore...just long as it works.

Good point about technology that mimics the human brain, Naperlou. One advancement that takes things a bit farther than the human brain is cloud computing and storage.

I have heard it said that people are no longer interested in speeds and feeds.  What they don't understand is that this is what drives technology.  Faster, more memory, etc. is the critical component that makes new applications, such as voice recognition in embedded systems, possible.  The speed and density that comes with smaller feature sizes makes this kind of thing possible. 

With the increase in available, low power storage using flash memory applications that use lots of memory, such as speach and image processing become possible.  In this, we are basically mimicking the human brain.
