    We already know what the pricing's going to be. Just short of an arm and a leg.

    And the march of technology continues... just wait for the early adopters to handle the prices...

    I'm calling around $150-$240 depending on how much profit they try and squeeze out of it. A 32gb micro sdhc card is about ~$75 now, so double that plus a little more should be the total cost.

    Wow. I'm kinda weirded out because I was talking about how they should work on making one this morning.

    Nice to know they're listening and were able to develop it in less than 8 hours.

    Well since you have the hotline, make your next wish for a reasonably priced TEC cooler that has proper thermal switching and takes care of around 500w would you?:D

    My contacts at corsair and coolermaster have assured me that such a product should be created before the end of the world on Oct 21st.

    Well I am certainly glad you have the "meaning of May 21st" figured out.

    The microSD format has come a long way since starting out as a proprietary memory card format for Motorola cellphones. A couple of years ago, who would have thought that it would be possible to stuff 64 gigabytes inside a card barely larger than a fingernail.

    I'm guessing you don't read/listen/get real news much.
    The end of the world has been rescheduled.

    sounds cool but is expected thus I'm not really impressed. If they said 1TB and for a reasonable price then I would be spitting out contents in my mouth on to my computer screen.

    You won't be seeing 1TB ones for a while.

    Its hard to imagine 512 billion useful bits working together at the size of a thumbnail, but cool! I'll take one for my phone please so I can put trivial things on it.

    If it produces no errors then sweet. Otherwise it seems like 16 GB MicroSD cards and up seems to have nasty error problems....but maybe that's where no tech involving flash memory comes in? Personally I'd rather see faster MicroSD cards rather than larger. An additional 16GB for example, to my phone would be JUST fine.
