Big Numbers

The Consumer Electronics Association estimates that last year the American citizens spent a record $113.5 billion on consumer electronics, and they’re projecting that we’ll drop a tidy $125.7 billion on iPods, flat screen TVs, robotic dogs, and USB cup warmers this year (and these figures aren’t including computer equipment).

Kinda makes me wonder if Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" isn't just around the corner.
