Can you believe that up to 16GB and 32GB is stored in one tiny little card that's the size of a fingernail. How does it work?

And the computer is also tricked into somehow putting more than the 1gig memory allows

Well, you see, what they do is get 16 or 32 one gigabyte microSD's, and put them all in a piledriver, which combines them all into one.

It works, try it. I do it all the time. Go to a local construction site and borrow a piledriver.

Remember years ago - When people were amazed that they cut floppy discs down to only 3 1/2 inches? when a 32 bit machine was considered amazing? and a 64 mb RAM stick was incredible and expensive?


i wonder what will be next that will have us scoffing at a 16gig microsd?

it is amazing.. I think it shouldn't get any smaller really because it would just be pointless and they'd be easily lost. - not that ds cards aren't but yeah.

I was reading through the old reviews and found this statement from back in 2006.
"I am adding another section to this review to outline the miniSD media itself, as I find it quite surprising. It supports the same features as the already small SD cards, but they get even smaller than before : they are now tiny!"

Technology really is progressing. In 2006 MiniSD cards are tiny, but imo they are rather big compared to MicroSD. I bet eventually we will have NanoSD cards that are smaller than dimes.
