I know that if I buy a Kingston 1GB Micro SD card, I could get a Taiwanese one, but if I get a Toshiba one, is it definitely a C01G Japanese one?
I see one on TradeMe (like eBay) for $18.50NZD (about $14.10USD) including shipping.

Lol. You didn't wait long for a reply. I would have gone for a 2GB, as it's a very high chance of getting Japan because they only make them there now.

I was under the belief that the Toshiba's were all Made In Japan. My 1GB and 2GB are both Made In Japan.

Yeah, I bought it because it was ~$10 cheaper than all the other ones on TradeMe, and it would have bee bought.
Yeah, I wanted a C01G to use as a sort of benchmark card, due to them being the fastest MicroSD card.
Lets hope it is a C01G.

Well, whether it is the fastest or not, it generally is used as a benchmark card in most reviews, so having one won't be a bad thing.

On a side note, anyone know anything about where the 2GB Transcend ones are made? My one works flawlessly, no skipping in the DoS intro, no freezing in PoR.

THere should be a standard for speeds and access times on MicroSD like for pretty much all other memory. I have a REALLy hard time even finding that sort of information for a lot of brands, especially if purchased at a local store.

    Was it ever operational?

    Costing a ton of jobs, environmental disaster, loss of a ton of money
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They still ship the oil, just in trucks instead of a pipe
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Okay so the pipeline (extension) was never operational, never worked, and shipping that oil was never cheaper because of it.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They do this stock investment thing Veho called futures trading
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's complex but yeah in spite of it not being operational (yet) they had planned on it being so

    They do this thing called "counting their chickens before they hatch".

    It's the same as when publishers claim piracy is costing them billions in "projected" earnings.

    Looking before jumping is also a good thing.

    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.
