By the very nature of technology it is forever changing. And while most of it loses value faster than a home bought during the mortgage crisis, some of it retains and increases in value quite significantly, as evidenced by this infographic.   For instance, an Apple-1 Computer, which cost $666.66 dollars in 1976, recently sold for a whopping $650,000.  That’s an increase in value by more than 20,000% after accounting for inflation, which would raise the price to $2,700 today.   Unfortunately, the original NES has not enjoyed the same uptick in value, probably because they’re fairly ubiquitous.  Sad, because I own one and continue to play it to this day.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
