Cost of Computing Power Equal to an iPad2
August 5, 2011
Computing technologies have driven economic growth and made all of our lives easier, allowing us to easily connect with people across the world and access information no matter our location. The price of these technologies has decreased even more so than the sticker price indicates, as new computers are so much more powerful than older models. If the typical worker in 1982 wanted to purchase something with computing power of an iPad2, it would have cost more than the 360 years worth of wages.
