Refers to the constant aging of computers and smart phones. The Phone or Computer starts off as a Giant...and one by one apps and new programs and new demands are placed upon it. Soon that former "Technological Giant" is tied to the ground and nearly useless as if by hundreds of busy little Lilliputian apps and demands threading it into submission.
My i-phone seemed so powerful 2 years ago. Now with so many apps, photos and new demands put upon it it seems like those Lilliputian's that were able to tie down the Giant Gulliver with thousands of tiny threads... and so the Lilliput effect can reach even to our cell phones and computers.
