There is an expression...... Never argue with an idiot. First he will drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience.

And what does this have to do with sensor size? hahahaha The internet would be boring wiothout these little spats. ...
Umm, how about the topic of of this thread being about full frame vs. the current APS-C sized sensor? Sorry my comparison of faster/better technology using computer chips, televisions and other examples flew over your head.

Technology does not exist in a vacuum; it exists in the market. Companies are not going to invest in an expensive new technology if there is not a reasonable expectation of demand.

The fact that some people use dial-up modems has what to do with chip speed? What to do with processer architecture? And what to do with cameras? Exactly nothing.
Your own quote below from an earlier post should answer this one. It means, even if "They don't need anything more", that MORE stuff is still going to get made. The guy who is satisfied with the slower speed of dial up, and may never need a faster chip, is going to get left in the dust by the company that is still going to come out with the faster technology. He either buys the new technology, or continues to use obsolete equipment.

As cameras become electronic commodities, sales will be driven more and more by price differentials. APS-C will always be cheaper than full-frame. And so they will always sell more, especially since the advantages of full-frame are known to relatively few people who take pictures.

Most people are totally happy with their point and shoot. Heck, many are happy with their mobile phones. That's because these devices work to the expectations of the users. They don't need anything more. And they are not going to pay one penny extra for something they don't need.

So unless you think full frame cameras will one day be consistently cheaper than APS-C, your conclusion is faulty.
