 Remember in 95 when a 1gb hard drive cost over 200 and video cards only had
1mb ram

A 12 gig flash card costs one thousand dollars? I can get an I river for a
lot less than that that holds 40 gigs of material! I shutter to think what a
40 gig flash card would cost. Maybe you'll be right in that flash cards will
be the future, and maybe you won't. But if you are, those cards are going to
have to come down in price big time. And when they do, there will be
probably the 20 gig one that is up near a thousand. That still gives the
edge to the Iriver 340 at 40 gigs for (and this is what I saw it for it
could be cheaper) about 300 dollars.

Looks like this flash card concept has a ways to go. For just books, it
might be awesome, but not as an mp3 player for music and tons of albums.
