How come technology has stagnated over the past few years? All we are getting are minimal improvements in processing power, thinness or weight. Why is there no i9 or petabyte storage? No batteries which last longer than a day on smartphones or holographic displays?

What went wrong?

I love this meme.
>>
>Why is there no i9
i9 IS NOT A FUCKING MEASUREMENT
i3, i5, i7 ARE JUST PRODUCT LINES
WHEN YOU SAY YOU BOUGHT AN i5, NOBODY EVEN FUCKING KNOWS WHAT GENERATION YOU BOUGHT IT FROM
STOP USING THIS TERM LIKE IT'S A MEASUREMENT OF PERFORMANCE
>>
Those things already exist. You don't here about them often since they're too expensive and not very many people can get their hands on it
>>
>>52275349
I believe on big factor for phone batteries is that since everyone wants HD 4k screens, it uses more power. If you look at any smartphone battery usage breakdown, the display is the biggest hog.

Additionally, the same reason why many things don't get significantly better is because it's all a business and how can companies guarantee return business... just like those gum commercials where they're forcing people to spit out the old piece and chew another; if they making something that lasts significantly better they won't profit.
>>
>>52275349
>i9
read >>52275385's post. actually I don't get why Intel doesn't just rename the high-end line (X79/X99) "i9"
>petabyte storage
we're down very close to laws-of-physics limits in hard drives, rather like we are in CPUs. In any case they're continuing to expand apace, but the price is coming down a lot more slowly now, since nowadays it's not being driven by consumer demand - consumers don't care anymore, they're plebs that stream shit - it's being driven by the datacenter. Anyway if you want a petabyte, you can have it, it's just that it'll fill half a rack and cost half a million dollars.
>No batteries which last longer than a day on smartphones or holographic displays?
could be done with current technology. They don't because thinness is a fashion trend, so every incremental improvement in capacity gets used for having less battery instead of more runtime.

It's probably for the better that shit slows down. Software has gotten worse faster than hardware has gotten better. And poor privacy and security practices are getting more and more entrenched, that needs to be remedied. We need to clean up how we use what we have, instead of just throwing more hardware at our problems.

Moores law is progressing at its predicted rate.
I think people are just getting impatient because it all feels so close. Since a much bigger mass of people are technological minded, the hype train gets magnified.
And I gotta say, it rustled my jimmies when I read "i9", that's not a measure of performance, it's an Intel product line.
>>
>>52275349
I'm on phone and can't verify, but it looks like the grids shrink vertically as they go down, thus the angles of the top and bottom shape are different. This leaves room for fucking about with the shape of the red and teal triangles to chop off a grand total of one arbitrary unit from them.
>>
>>52275349
Why is the question in the picture posed as if it's a paradox? You rearrange the shapes; of course it would be different.
>>
The tech itself is developing quite quickly, but what gets released to the consumer market, that's a different thing.
There are already 16TB SSDs in use in the professional world and have been for some time and what we get are these little 2TB shits.

The market is milking the fuck out of every possible tech, so of course everything seems to have stagnated.
And it doesn't help that most people are consumer drones who go out and buy a new flagship phone or a new CPU every damn year.
There's no incentive for the market to start pumping out better products, when people are happy enough to buy something that's only marginally better
Not to mention our processor tech is coming to the end of it's road and new alternative needs to be found.
That's a big undertaking and requires fucktons of money.
No one wants to be the first guy to take the initiative in a case like this, because it's always a risk for the investor.

Slight shifts. Wouldn't be possible in real life. Just look at the bottom triangle's red triangle, bottom row, third square from the left. You'll notice the difference immediately. It's the same principle as the chocolate bar trick.
>>
>>52275349
a reference triangle based, but not identical to the top version, has an area of 13*5/2 = 32.5 area units.

The individual parts have areas consisting of 2*5/2, 3*8/2, 7, and 8. Sum these up and you get 5+12+7+8 = 32. Compared to the reference triangle, we are short .5 area units. And this is explained by >>52276156
The top "triangle" is pointing "inwards" and loses .5 area units compared to reference, and the bottom "triangle" is pointing "outwards", and would be .5 area units larger had the gap been filled in.

Not only is the top triangle concave, the bottom triangle is convex. Yes, it does add up to an entire square.
>>
>>52276555
>>
For those who don't think the slopes are different, what is the explanation of the missing rectangle? Personally I think they are messing with our perception due to moving the blocks around. I have counted the rectangles encompassing the figures, but they add up. It is like some illusion but I can't figure it out.

Like pic related, in which the yellow circle is actually of equal size, but due to relative sizing of its surrounding circles it tends to have a bigger visual impact when the circles surrounding it are smaller.

The agenda is to make the human population believe that shit like the iPhone 7 is the apex of technology. I think you need to consider that the US and global government's keep humanity on a slow planned out feeding tube of technology because we clamor over it and so they make max profit for the longest and also it keeps people stupid and trances out in their distractions (iPhones)
The US govt specifically has such advanced technology that they prolong it's release because they think we can't handle it or we will use it against them

Here's what's going on.

If the top image were a true triangle it'd have an area of 32.5 but it's not a true triangle and it's area is only 32. But that still leaves .5 units unaccounted for from that block. The way it makes up for that .5 is by jutting out.

In pic related, the neon green part represents how much the bottom image grew out to make room for the blank square. If you were to measure the neon green part it'd be exactly 1 units^2.

As for processors and microarchitecture, we reached the barrier of the size of the atom. Single electron transistors can't get any smaller; the ones that they are developing that are only a few atoms thin break too easily if they overheat.

It's kind of hard to see, but there's a very obtuse angle in what most would assume to be the "hypotenuse" of the top "triangle". It's actually a 4-sided polygon, with an angle slightly less than 180 degrees where the teal triangle and red triangle corners meet on the top polygon.

In other words the "hypotenuse" of the top triangle toes in a bit, so it has less area than it appears.

The bottom triangle is the opposite, that "hypotenuse" actually toes out, and the exact amount it toes out is equal to 1 unit square.

You'll see what I mean when you transpose both triangles ontop of one another.
