On a lighter note, the day before Idiot broke into my car, I picked up a new 4GB compact flash card for, get this, $129.00 CDN.
I took a look at an old Shutterbug magazine from November 2003, its cover story touting the news that Lexar had released the worlds first 4GB flash card. At that time, it's street price was $1500.00 USD!!
I heard just a few days ago that flash memory pricing has taken a real dip as of late. So if you're interested in a new card, maybe now's the time.
