    my friend and i were just talking about the advancement of technology and how fast it grows. there is a formula out there that is like spot on that show the growth of computer technology and i cant find it.

    just think 5 years ago 256 mb was like top of the line ram. Now the mac pro can handle up to 16GB.

    I just wanted to hear some input on this matter. How long until we see micro computers in our own bodies. etc.

    what do you think apple technology will look like in 2, 5, 10, 15 years?....
    its crazy exciting to think about.

    I have some old MacUser magazines from the mid 90s. I was looking at them over the weekend. There are some crazy prices in there eg. 64MB DIMMs for £1750!
    Or a x2 External CD burner for £1400.
