It's become more extensive because computers are more widespread now. People still play games, use word processors, spreadsheets, databases, etc. Those uses are still the same. It's more that things have been added to the list of common computer uses than that it's all that different.
In essence it's all exactly the same: People using microcomputers to run the software they want to run. In that sense there may never be anything truly new in computer land.
