5 terabyte USB 5.0 thumbstick the size of your pinkie nail with built-in free Wi-Fi hotspot functionality, plus it's blue?
That'll be $15 please sir.
I know, not the most related pic ever, but still.

Good to know that even back then, Apple products were over-priced.

It gets better. These pictures are from 1996. When you adjust for inflation, you come out with these prices:

$1,899.99 PC = $2,745.07
$2,399.99 Overpriced Apple = $3,467.47

Imagine a pie. The more slices you put into it, the smaller they become. If these slices were made to represent years, you'd notice that there is much less to remember compared to the whole as time goes on. It's unfortunate, but that's how it works.

Hey, cheer up. Just think:

If our current tech now is awesome, just look back every five years and realize how ******* badass your tech is that day!

Well it's not about our tech really, it's about the fact that time is passing so fast

I think you can find them for like $100 now (correct me if I'm wrong). I might be thinking of a really good sale though.

Think that's impressive?

About 20 (just twenty) years ago, this mofo was top-o-the-line with its famous 133 Mhz CPU.

Ahhh... the sound of starting up that beast, the floppy drive performing some of the earliest dubstep performances, in tandem with the dial-up modem (although that came later in my case).... **** was so ca$h...

And ten years from now they'll be going "$300 got you a 38GB iPhone4! Or a 1TB hard drive for $100!"

The future is a scary, marvelous place

10 years from now? Maybe 1-5PB (1,000-5,000TB) hard drive standard. You can never know for sure.
