If you see it that way, there hasn't been any technological progress for thousands of years. Da Vinci already proposed rockets and airplanes. Technology only got "updated" to the point where they could be made for real. And an airplane is just a windmill on steroids.
The fact that you question the significance of recent inventions on an internet message board is hilarious. Probably writing it on a TFT monitor with LED backlighting. Or from a smartphone with touchscreen. With wireless internet access.
