The problem people have with tablets is their lack of tactile presence. This will not change, we may get used to it, but it will never feel as nice as a raised button. There is a reason some people still want their cherry switch clicky keyboards still too.
There is also a really great rise in board gaming in the past few years because people do enjoy engaging their brains, but still crave the enjoyment of the tactile feel of having physical pieces move around as well as sitting across the table in other people's presence while they play.
If anything look at the rise of how technology that allows us to be social when we otherwise couldn't be has exploded and taken over. People love other people and love being able to talk to them at all times. If anything in the past we all lived extremely introverted lives and were forced to only interact with those in our neighborhood and surrounding town.
Now, not only do I have access to that, but most of the entire world can be reached, day or night, at any time. I can show pictures, videos, speak to them in voice or indirectly interact with them through games. At all points in times we are now able to be connected, and I don't get why this is such a horrible thing for people?
Staying apart is what leads to confusion and ultimately wars as it is easy to alienate people that are disconnected. It is quite easy to ignore things going on in a foreign country that appears disconnected from your day to day life, but perhaps you know someone from their and game with them regularly or talk to them on a forum you frequent. Suddenly that global problem you would never have heard of in the past is a very real part of your life.
I don't understand this anti technology backlash I keep seeing, especially here.
