Peter is smart. Peter shouldn't be Reed Richards or Tony Stark smart. And he shouldn't be a genius at EVERYTHING. That's absurd.
Spider-Man was always meant to be an everyman type of character. The fact that he had to settle for lowly jobs like being a photographer, because his life as Spider-Man kept ruining everything else was appealing.
Sure, I'm all for some progress and you can't keep things stale for 50 years.. but like Bubba said, the teacher development was nice. Stuff along those lines. Keeping Peter grounded..
Being able to fix all of your problems by whipping up some gadget everytime isn't nearly as interesting as outwitting your opponents. It's like a shortcut, to me. And it feels more like an Iron Man thing to do.. I keep expecting Pete to whip up some Hulkbuster armor or something.
