I think I would buy an external hard drive and spend the remaining $4800 on something more practical like DVDs!!!

Seriously, I can't imagine any need for such a large capacity flash drive at that price!

"Is that 64GB in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"

Couldn't agree more. I remember being completely amazed with my first 3 GB hard drive. "I'll never be able to fill that puppy up."

I know everyone has their own stories, but I remember my dad was getting a computer and the choice was between 40 meg and 60 (or 80) meg.. I told him "go with the 40. You will never fill it up."

And people thought I was cool because I had a DS/DD disk. Instead of 360KB, I could store 720KB on my floppy.

I remember buying floppies to store data on...one disk at a time.

Before that, it was cassette tapes. SCREEEEEEECH....SCREEEEEECH...SCREEEEEEECH (one hour later) "Hello world."

You never used paper tape? You don't know how nice cassettes were.

I just can't wait for high capacity flash (or some other format) to come out so we can get 30-60GB or larger mp3/video players with no moving parts and much longer battery life than the hard drive based iPod and creative players out now.

I can hardly wait either. I'd love an iPod Nano with a much larger capacity (even 10GB or 20GB would be nice).

In notebook computers of the near future, hopefully (1) flash drives will replace hard drives and (2) the batteries will have much more capacity = resulting in a notebook computers with 15" screens to last 10 hours on a single charge without added size/weight.

Don't laugh--I can see an iPod Nano with 10 GB flash memory before the end of 2006.
