is this a historical plausible reading of computers and related evolution?

Is it that computing machines used to be sort of more general purpose mechanical devises that could apply their mathematical/calculative prowess to various areas, and as they evolve, seem to be more specific in build and calculation?

eg we get more task specific devices than we used to, no?
this one’s for gaming, that one’s for networking, etc..?

If this is the case, then does it not sort of validate the idea of mechanised devices wanting to be specialised in specific areas?

As if the devices ask us to perceive them for what they are – not to do reflections of us onto them. We need to learn empathy with machines so that they could be hunted them better, no? Perhaps if I was a mechanical device, I’d be jealous of cows – or other such animals..?
