Bell Telephone Company, 1955

Here's one thing that's a lot cheaper today: long distance phone-calling. A 3-minute phone call between New York and Boston cost the equivalent of $4.38 in 2009 dollars--and then you had to add the 10% excise tax!

There are so many phone services to choose from today, including Skype and other internet-based calling services that are free or inexpensive.
