As has been said computers aren't new, the novelty has worn off and I appreciated the producers get that.
Yep. It's like the use of communicators as if they're cellular phones in this movie - given the current immersion of the movie-going audience in this kind of consumer technology, treated those flip-boxes as if they're exotic tech or having them function in some way very dissimilar from phones would simply be a distraction.
I really liked that, especially showing Pike receiving a 'text message' about the meeting, it made sense and showed the designers original intent that there would be a screen inside the flip part.
