Retail Tales – The $32000 flash memory card


Once upon a time in the early days of digital I carried a huge selection of media cards. Compact flash, including the brand new IBM 1 gig hard drive. SD cards, and others. At the time the general retail price was about $1 per megabyte. That 1 gig card sold for about $900! I noticed on amazon today a 32 gig card for less then $20. Amazing how fast things change.

  1. Yup crazy! I can’t remember how much the first memory card cost me but I did buy a 32Gb for 15 quid the other day which I’d imagine is about 20 of your finest US dollars.
