Technology Gets Old... Fast

I think I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Price of a Blackberry Pearl Two Years Ago (January 2008) (Also, note that the item is "out of stock")

Price of a Blackberry Pearl Today (March 2010)

The difference (when the customer buys a plan of $35 dollars or more, locked into Rogers for 3 years): (249.99 - 9.99) / 9.99 * 100% = 2 402.4024% or 24x

  1. And today? 2020? The demise of the blackberry....these blogs really are a snap shot of history and are fascinating to read through. It is a time capsule of sorts. Working with medical device companies israel we should do the same with our equipment from 40 years ago, 30 years ago, 20 years ago, 10 years ago. It could also be a good marketing tactic.
