[Chris Conlee] "I remember buying a 16MB SIMM for my Amiga which was $1000. Nobody could even DREAM of a gigabyte of RAM. Unfathomable. Can you imagine!?"

And to bring that full circle - yesterday I realized that one of our macs running fcpx only had 8 gigs of RAM and could handle 16. So I jumped on OWC to upgrade and found that it cost a whopping $95 for 16gb of RAM. Then I remembered literally using an old $40k Media 100 system to hold a door open when we were moving into our new studios.

So I extrapolated this overall trend and I figure by 2020 all of our systems should be free.

My calculations also show that by then fcpx will have evolved beyond any storylines at all, and Apple will provide all possible content, pre-edited, with a pulldown menu of styles: Drama, Doc, Soft Porn etc.
