I don't really disagree with your post, but Moore's Law is still alive and well. While consumer CPUs aren't seeing the huge bumps, they never really did; it has always been incremental changes in that space. Most consumers simply aren't interested in the top-end of desktop performance, let alone the top-end of what silicon can do generally. Now, if you're doing video editing or serious gaming and willing to buy a $1,000 video card, you'll see that the changes aren't as minor as the experience of the average consumer would suggest.
