    The idea of using magnetism to store data is pretty dangerous.

    A weak magnet could cause storage failure.

    That's why hard disks never took off as a popular storage medium.

    No, I mean the idea of a small flash storage like a microSD or SD card, using magnets.
    I mean the DS itself has a magnet inside just for triggering sleep mode.

    DO YOU STICK A HARD DISK IN YOUR CELL PHONE? YOUR CAMERA? YOUR FLASHCART?

    No, I don't think so.

    Oh really?
    Well that was quite a few years back, mobile storage has evolved.

    I'm just saying, having mobile storage devices easily affected by magnets is a bad idea. That doesn't count external hard disks, they're portable but not mobile.

    Because they're cheap, inexpensive and easy to produce, unlike say, solid state drives (perhaps?)
    Anyway, I'll be putting a 16gb microSD in my phone today...So yeah?

    It wasn't an external hard disk like the ones that sit on a desk and connect with a cable, it was a flashcart type thingy that plugged into the DS. It was most definitely mobile by the definition you're using. The same way a hard disk based MP3 player is mobile. The same way a cell phone is mobile. The pick it up and carry it around while you're using it kind of mobile.

    I'm not going to keep wasting your time and mine trying to tell you that mobile magnetic storage already works and will continue to do so. If this technology ever makes it to market, feel free not to buy it.

    I think Rupee was thinking of stacked platters type of drive. [​IMG]

    When I saw 50x more my jaw dropped!
