Praising With Faint Damns

Found on a customer review page for a memory card:
Cons: No built-in street-level GPS. No host-device-accessible cold fusion power unit. No antigravity or timetravel capabilities. That's pretty much it.
Also, Sandisk have announced a 4GB mini-SD card. That's a lot. And here's a 2GB micro-SD card. Now they're just being silly.

1 They won't seem silly when everyone jumps from small digital cameras to small digital video cameras.

You can always find a way to abuse a bigger storage device.

2 Just picked up a 4Gb usb memory stick for $150.

My Nano cost e $360 the same time last year. The same vintage 512Mb stick cost about $80.

Whats not to like about the extra storage.

And yes. Once you go solid state storage for video then those big capacities are necessary. Still waiting on a 3 ccd memory card based video camera.

3 Yeah. EYO have a 4GB SD card for $140 - but not all cameras support them.


And while you need a lot of storage for video, you don't really need it in something as tiny as mini-SD.  We're going to end up with a great big lens, a sensor, and a tiny electronics package stuck to the back.
