This shows why this should act as a wake-up call. Markets innovate and use this newer tech because it makes sense, consumers on the other hand are stuck in there old fashioned ignorant piles of --it, at least a lot of them. There's far more innovation than just GE ( from your next post).
I don't understand your apparent separation of "consumers" from "the market". The market is comprised of consumers. When have consumers ever rejected "newer tech" that "makes sense"?
