In Sydney, it is possible to order a single loaf of bread from an “artisan” bakery for around $15. A fully featured Android smart phone or Windows Phone can be purchased for just over $30.

One smartphone for the price of two loaves of bread.

This smartphone price will, no doubt, come down. The bread prices will, no doubt, increase.

It won’t be long before a loaf of bread you order online will cost more than the computer you used to place the order.
