Last I heard phones and tablets weren't using HDDs, they use flash chips which believe it or not is the same technology used in a SSD. They might not be capable of the same speeds atm but again that will only expand in the future. But alas, that's something you don't seem to believe in.
I'm sure 20 years ago the average user was quite happy with VCR quality. Does that mean DVDs, much less blurays are overkill? With your logic the answer is yes.
Alrighty then. If those are truly your arguments to what I said then I have nothing left to say. Fallacies and analogies that simply don't apply to what you are using them for.
For example does your car carry a trailer that exponentially grows heavier each year? Does your alcohol tolerance exponentially go up every year?
And to think "bad argument is bad" was typed in the same post...BAM
Although we all know media is shifting towards streaming, therefore falling back on the connections that people seem to be arguing is "overkill".
Well considering your argumentative fallacies were extremely abundant, your arguments were bad. For example you continue to use Historians fallacy. And your ridiculous red herring arguments are laughable.
"I'm sure 20 years ago the average user was quite happy with VCR quality. Does that mean DVDs, much less blurays are overkill? "
Historians fallacy. Just because it wasn't overkill 20 years ago doesn't mean it's not overkill now. Ironic considering you were just complaining about "my fallacies"
"So the fact that you have a slower than average SSD makes your predicament apply to everyone else?"
Red herring. More irony.
plus not all of us can spend 500 bucks on a super speed SSD or pcie drive.
"Last I heard phones and tablets weren't using HDDs, they use flash chips which believe it or not is the same technology used in a SSD."
Thank you for pointing out obvious facts. Never said they used HDDs. Why on earth would you possibly want to do lan transfers on your phone or tablet? And why would you need 1gb/s to transfer for you phone? You do realize phones have limits on pixel density right so any 4k videos are even more pointless?
Please tell me that most people do large files transfers on their phones and tablet all the time; that would be too funny, and this thread could use some comic relief.
People want streaming on their phone in 4g from anywhere. The world is primarily going to use into mobile devices and cloud computing, not reverting back to ancient home lan networks. If you can't make this simple prediction to the future then i'm sorry but you cannot see trends at all.
"For example does your car carry a trailer that exponentially grows heavier each year? Does your alcohol tolerance exponentially go up every year?"
Do you even know what you are saying? What does the exponential growth of processing power have to do with the diminishing returns of home lan network speeds? This is a sad strawman argument
having 100000 horsepower would give you diminishing returns on car usability like 1gb/s lan networks would give you diminishing returns in network usability. the file sizes people use on average has not grown exponentially. My truck doesnt need a 100000 horsepower because it never has to pull a trailer with that much weight. Same goes for lan network speeds.
Analogies only need to be relevant in the context in which they are used. For example, your horrible logic would be something like this "Does your computer use gasoline? Does your computer actually move?" The entire idea of an analogy is to clarify similar structural concepts between two things, not that they are exactly identical.
That, like your previous example, has nothing to do with what im talking about.
Not every aspect needs to be identical in an analogy
