This video is from 1995. Article about it.
The camera displayed after 1:50 had 1 Megapixel, was able to store 70 pictures... and 131 MEGABYTES. At the time it was worth US$ 20 000.
- In November 22, 2005 a local newspaper (from my country) showed an ad from a 42' PLASMA TV worth US$ 4500. Today the same TV is sold in an eBay-like website for... US$ 150-250. 94% less.
The same can be said about STORAGE.
The link shows how it became cheaper over the years.
Then we have the 4K/5K/8K PC monitors... and all equipment that records in higher resolutions.
My question is: since all these technologies (add others not mentioned) became cheaper over the years, wouldn't be wiser to wait a little more before any investment?
Should we always have the last gadgets?
And since I am talking about prices, why it makes sense that Apple can charge
For the new iPAD Pro (11/wi-fi only) with 1 TB...
Or US$ 799 for 64 GB, when we consider that decades ago we already had that ammount of storage for much less? Isn't this a complete rip-off?
I find hilarious that in 2018 someone is paying for a 64 GB tablet when more than 10 years before we were using hard drives 10 times that size.
