A decade made a huge difference in flash drive memory pricing


Flash Drive Today

Today, you can buy a flash drive with enough memory to store more than a room full of floppy discs.

We all know that memory compared to the days before flash drives was much more expensive per megabyte (remember when we used to store memory by the kilobyte?), but even as recently as a decade ago, memory using the same basic technology was so much more expensive. The little froggy above stores 4gb and costs around $7.

Compare that to the ad below from a decade ago. At this rate a terabyte will be free a decade from now. Perhaps more importantly, will we have something better than a googly-eyed frog?
