High Res only - one version of the resource to serve

With the new hardware and fast internet connection, is it the norm to only keep images in one high-res version, regardless of the way the content is utilized in the article?

Today's example is this article on Forbes; Why I Left The Wall Street Journal To Join Oracle

From the article, here are two images : Siloette - 924x519 used in a region of 170 x 113 - 1700x1129 in a region of 808 x 454
Looks like a style of publishing where a subset of a full publication is injected on the left pane of another article to cross reference articles. If you continue reading on the site, then you start to benefit from this as you already have the resource in your local cache.
Is this the new trend or one off?
The other new trend I am seeing is to use flouted images on iOS, as background image in LinkedIn Connect for iOS.
