Does anyone think these designs are a step backwards?

I have a big, bulky camera. I also have a brilliant compact camera that closes up into a smooth pebble-like shape that I can easily slip into a pocket.
But cameras like this one apparently believe the "cupcake on a piece of toast" form factor is a fashion statement. I turn away thinking that surely they could have engineered it to be far more compact.
