If we are talking about the decline of generic technology I could talk all day long about how much anything modern feels absurd and far to me from imho what I suppose people usually needs from tech products no matter which type, audio, computer, game console, music players, whatever.
One for all would be the actual concept of the smartphone that imho went so far there's probably no way back to any smartphone-less life at least for the masses beside someone that force itself to come back to the the past type of free time life when portable devices might be useful but not necessary.
It's not only a nostalgic point of view but often any digital product seems to have followed the same path. The logic of a computer/phone/game-console as a temporary useful tool seems partially replaced by the device as a sort of "life-saving" tool can't be live without. Some might leave their house without their shoes more than their digital devices.
But even computers follow a similar path, modern software too where the lightest more useless sw weight hundreds of megabytes of installation, frameworks, browsers, all type of ads, analytics, whatever thing make the old "freeware/shareware/buy" logic mostly disappeared since decades when simply buying the product was enough and could be used forever without which time based agreements/contracts. Components drivers weight also the same absurd amount of space to just work without even installing external software often with absurd GUIs that try to be user friendly and end up to feel like not following any optimization, stability and accessibility when sometimes options are not even easy to find as usually was done in the old windows logics.. not to mention the o.s. themself.. the logic of a consumer tech product bought as a closed box nowdays seems like a service that must be used in the way intended, not simply bought.
