They do get better but with technology often for the consumer the gains in practical terms get less and less. I have a Nikon D7000 sure the 7200 is better but will it really make that much difference for me? Same with lap tops and phones the snazzy features are nice but aren't going to change my life. (except Samsung who might burn my house down). Thats why they spend so much on marketing.

The original article referred to how DSLRs are an island in technology cut off from things we take for granted in other devices, connectivity, device sharing, USB charging etc and some earlier posters wrote how Nikon and Canon dont have the software technology to improve features.  Thats complete nonsense.  I work in software development and have been on many projects where high tech companies have outsourced development of phone apps, or IC design or embedded software because they dont have an in-house facility.

Now, if a UX developer came to me on a project with the menu design Nikon use for their in-camera software Id strangle him with his own wireframes.  However, Ive used Nikon all my days from film onwards and I know how things work.  Its not a decision whether its better or worse than Canon.  I know if I need to make setting changes, or even swap a lens really quickly in the dark at a gig, I can do it without thinking.  Its brand loyalty by Stockholm syndrome.  Ive been held hostage by poor ergonomic design for so long Im comfortable with it and dont want to change to something equally badly designed but in a different way.
