I am not so sure.
At the very beginning of the computer revolution only a small handful of people had PC. Those were people that had actual use for PC. They wanted to do some work on PC, make a program, create content, do some analysis in spreadsheet, do bookkeeping ...
Later on, general public started to get PCs, so they could do some light browsing, look at some photos, listen to music, look at video from netflix, have a skype call ...
Today situation is changing, because there are appliances - such as Kindle Fire, iPad, Android tablets, ... that provide most of the functionality that a non-programmer, non-geek ever needs. So the general public doesn't need to have PC anymore. They are happy with a iPad or whatever that "just works" (TM). And PCs are again just for a handful of geeks that have meaningful use for them. We have once again made a full circle.
