when 1GB weighed 10x your laptop…

nice visual imagery of technological progress — although I think the 1GB SD card was available a few years ago (I’ve had a 2GB in my Palm for a year already).  I’d also like to see what the 1GB/72-lb hard drive cost in 1987, vs the 1GB SD card in 2007; that might be even more dramatic.

(holy crap, was 1987 really 20 years ago?  1987 always seemed very pivotal for me; U2’s Joshua Tree, Ferris Bueller*, Black Monday…)
