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 .

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.
