My personal feeling is that it cannot be held ones hand.  In various hobby/work 
fields I am involved in, the evolution of the next generation is quite different 
than that the past.  The hand held devices have taken over their lives to a point 
that nothing else matters.  Hobbies/life now are based on the handheld device so 
big rigs of the past are a thing of the past.  Computers have gone the same way. 
If you check with a lot of other hobbies they are going away as well.

Lately I am following a friend of mine who has a large HO guage train setup.  He 
is selling it all off since he sees no younger group coming along to teach. 
Myself I am selling off most radio/electronic gear while there may be money in it.

As my family says, "Dad talks all over the world with a room full of stuff.  I can 
do the same with my phone"

Just my Canadian bucks worth......
