A few years ago, reviewing Michio Kaku's book on the future, I cited the
view that

< Immediate prospects include a hugely expanded Internet, driven by
plummeting computer chip prices--well under a dollar apiece by 2000, around
5 cents by 2005, a cent by 2010. >

How did that work out, so far?

[my subject line might baffle Americans, I suppose; in Oz it's shorthand
for `extremely inexpensive', since in Oz and the UK `chips' are what you
lot would call `french fries']
