We live in an era where digital cameras are not viewed so much as photographic imaging tools but consumer electronics. Because of digital a lot of people have either taken up photography or (myself included) found that it opens a whole new world of learning.
As long as camera manufacturers continue to develop new technology at a fast pace, headlines will continue to be about "the latest, fastest, cleanest, poshest..."
Digital technology allows for more people to try it out (there must be more "newbies" out there than pretty much ever before) and, given the huge and complicated array of "beginner" cameras on the market, it's no suprise that a lot of talk revolves around "what should I buy", "how do I..." and "what does this mean".
For what it's worth, I've found that I've stopped asking so much about kit as I've learned more about how to use it. I'm not an artistic person by nature and I still find the technical aspects fascinatiing but I think that once you understand your equipment you progress to learning about the art.
