We live in the future.
Recall the first time you used a 32-bit machine. Recall thinking "32-bit math seems like a good idea, but the moby is impractically large. 24 bits would be fine."
I bought an extra 2 GB of RAM for my laptop yesterday. Half a moby. I paid $69. Madness!
The first RAM I recall buying with my own money cost $85 for a 1 MB SIMM. That would have been around '92, so add in 15 years of inflation to make that cost even more in real terms.
