8GB Flash Drive Transcends Ludicrous and Surpasses Incredulous

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

The saturation level of USB flash drives on the market surpassed "ludicrous" ten entries ago, and is fast approaching "incredulous" with a charmingly enthusiastic but ultimately pointless tenacity — like a 3-legged dog chasing a carrot on a stick attached to it s forehead.

BUT, this isn t just another flash drive, as storage media company Transcend have announced their holy-crap-is-that-8GB? flash drive as the new top end product in the Jetflash series. The product page gives very little away, but I assume we can expect a size slightly bigger than the 4GB version (88mm x 33mm x 15mm). How much? How MUCH?? , I hear you cry with mouths afroth from the thought of being able to store a universe of pr0nz in the palm of your hand — well this bad boy has a provisional retail price of 89,800 yen (approx. US$770). Hmm. Well, I guess being able to carry a small cul-de-sac of pr0nz on my iPod shuffle is good enough for now.
