    Link: theRegister - Taiwan Firm to Launch Production of 2,048gB MemoryCard.

    2TB (TeraByte) = 2048 gigs boys and girls. That`s all *I* gotta say. Just last year did peripheral companies begin supporting the use of the new (then) 512mB (.5 gig) SD card. Welcome to the next giant leap in technology.

    Just seems like an insane jump, to go from half a gig to 2000 gigs!
    On average, a picture taken with a 5mP camera at a pixelation rate of 1024x768 at best quality would fill about 2mB.

    That`s approx. 512 for every gig; multiplied by 1000 = 512,000 pictures per 1000 gigs; multiplied by 2 =

    Approx. 1,000,000 pictures on this card AT BEST QUALITY.

    At lowest quality, you can expect to multiply that number by about 15 (15,000,000 pictures at lowest quality).

    But that`s only if you plan to use it for pictures. Obviously it can be used for more than that.

    I`ve never even seen a 2000gig HARD drive, let alone a memory card :-P.
