One of the few consumer product categories that seems to be resistant to inflation is technological devices, such as computers, music equipment, etc. Or to put it more accurately, you now get more for your money than in the old days. One example was detailed in an article earlier this summer on TheEnterpriseBlog.
The blog post compared the entertainment equipment you could buy in 1964 from Radio Shack with the equipment you could buy today, for about the same relative amount of money. I was in high school in 1964, and had only the money I was making from my minimum-wage part-time jobs. But I was every bit as much a gadget freak then as now, so this comparison is fascinating to me. I hope you find it interesting also.
