CDW, the company known for those doofy commercials, actually has a 64GB (yes, gigabyte) flash drive available for purchase. How much, you say? Well, this flash drive weighs in at a very cheap, $5,739. Yes, this 64GB flash drives costs roughly the same as a slightly used, cheap car. It supports USB 2.0, thankfully.
Just wait until I get out of school as a computer engineer, then I can build myself a 1TB USB Drive by then. See with these big flash drives coming out it won't be long before we really can forget the HD in a laptop and just run off a USB drive, though for the sake of speed they really should put it into a PCMCIA or even just SATA format. Though USB is nice because you could literally goto any newer computer and boot up off your flash drive. And now with these flash drives being so cheap they should just start selling games and such on them, I say down with CDs! Specially since they suck major power from your laptop, I know it will take awhile, but CDs are going out the door, just like tapes, just like CDs came out in the 80s, but were not common until the 90's, well by sometime in the 2010's CDs I am betting will goto to the wind. Funny thing is my Physics professor asked if anyone had a CD for a demostration, but no one did, just shows how CDs are already pretty much being replaced.
