Ok, that was one of my typical tongue-in-cheek comments,
but I am using flash memory more and CDs/DVDs less.
I really love this combination 2 GB SD card/SD Card reader
as it can be be used as USB pen/jump drive because the reader is real small.
You can always find 1 GB and 2 GB cards on sale
I use 'em in my music player
No more portable CD player; it's with my Walkman.
My newest CD/DVD player has a USB slot so I can watch video and play songs on to my TV from that combo reader/card.
The new headset in the dash of my wife's Jeep has a 3.5mm connector so I can play directly from that little player using the earphone connection.
Many of the new head units also have USB ports so you can play songs from the USB reader.
Actually, they are little too expensive to use for long term archival, or on-the-shelf, storage.
Note of caution, there are 4GB SDHC cards in the market that will not work with SD card readers.
SD and SDHC cards are physically, but not functionally interchangeable.
If you buy and SD card, make sure it will work with your current gear.
Oh yeah, also use 2 GB SD cards in my DeLorme PN-20 GPSr
I can hold all the detail maps of SoCal and Arizona on one card.
