Maybe your cell phone bill isn’t so bad

A few months ago I posted a link that looked at how much the cost of a television had fallen over time. Spoiler alert: it’s pretty dramatic.

So this throwaway fact in the middle of a New Yorker article about Research In Motion caught my eye (emphasis mine):

Historically, new technologies have been very expensive—when phone service was introduced in New York, it cost the equivalent of two thousand dollars a month

Or, more than Mitt Romney’s monthly tax bill! Zing!

Am I doing it wrong?
