in the year 1965 the first 911s priced about $6,500, while the first "desktop
computer" by Olivetti at the same time was about half the price of 911, namely:
$3,200. Currently, the high-end PC is about $1k, while Porshe 911 starts at
$50k+ and goes up to about $180k. Any thoughts on that?

 
If only people crashed Porsches with their driving at the same rate as they crash computers with their programs, there will be fewer idiots on earth!
