Remember when, over a decade ago, the price of computer RAM was a serious discussion?
A problem in my stats class today got me to thinking about this. Remember when, back in the 90s, RAM hit that magical price of $100/Mb, and that was a big deal? It was a tremendous milestone at the time.
Just for giggles, when the question came up today, I decided to use it as a teaching point. I went to Amazon and typed in "PC RAM" and the first one that came up was 4 GB for $19.99. That's half-a-cent per MB, down from $100/MB less than a generation ago.
