1988 Vs. 2008: A Tech Retrospective

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.

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."
