A VCR once cost $469

 Yep. And guess how much that would be in today's dollars:
Whoa! Why didn't I crop the bottom of that image?

Now I am just wondering about how many VCRs I could buy in 1915 with a dollar.

    This provides an important social outlet for many youngsters in a time when more and more people are becoming increasingly isolated from one another.
    Unlike popular beliefs video games have how to use
    them which enable it to even be considered as being a learning
    tool. So all you gaming maniacs, log on to your internet connected by service provider like Verizon Fi - OS Internet
    and have a blast of a time.

  2. We had a VCR back in 1978. According to my dad, he paid $999 for both the VCR and a black and white video camera that attached to it (ie: not portable). From what I understand, the ones before 1978 were only 2HR (SP) and 1978 was when they introduced 2HR/4HR (SP/LP). We began videotaping every Christmas morning in 1978 and somewhere I have a tape of me dumping out my stocking that year and finding all the original Star Wars figures. :)

  3. That's amazing! We were one of the first on the block to get one, but it was years after that. I imagine my block was full of Luddites. (I think I used that term right.)
