Think the iPhone is pricey? The cool cell phone of 1988 cost $4382 in today's dollars. A 150MB hard drive? $8755. Take a trip with PC World down memory lane, and you'll never whine about the price of a gadget again.
i cant believe those prices...
Ahh how I remember watching a laserdisc movie in high school and thinking "Holy crap! That CD is huge!".
but I don't think they should of done 20 years, maybe just 10 years would of been better. But it is crazy to think that these things were thought of as being so over the top for there time. Can't wait to see what we have in 20 years from now. I loved the line, "in 20 years we won't need to carry a library around when we can just DL it from the internet cloud."
We've come a loooong way baby.
PS3 - RAM 256 Well that's wrong. Still an awesome read.
A Laptop from 60 years from now would be worth trillions of dollars today. That's how you know there aren't time travelers.
Dr. Pepper all over my monitor. Thanks for the laugh.
The one thing in there that have improved the least are the cameras. Analog just worked so well for them took digital longer to overcome it.
WOW, the prices has really come down since then, but didn’t the incomes of families come down since then too?
The year I was born great the advance in tech made things cheaper so this is how it's supposed to be
Lol, crazy prices though.
is more affordable now days.
I remember my parents having one of those "car phones" that you plugged into the cig lighter. A phone in your car!? This is madness!!1
