My wife, Amy, recently came home with a new SD card for her camera. It was a little pricier than a normal chip, and when I inquried why it was so expensive, she told me that the sales person told her it could just slip right into the USB port on our computer.
I, of course, didn't believe her.(I must have some genetics that go back to Missouri)... so I said "let me see that thing!". She'd purchased this SanDisk Ultra II (shown at the left). It was only a 1 gig card, but according to the instructions, it could be "broken in half" and then inserted directly into a standard USB 2.0 port.
Being the Unbeliever that I am, I had to try it, and I'm here to report that it worked like a charm.
It took a bit of effort to get it to snap in half the first time. (I was afraid I was truly going to break it).. but once it snapped the first time, it was easier each successive time. The instructions claim that it can withstand up to [Dr. Evil voice here] ONE MILLION snaps (insert maniacal laughter here).
It's the exact same size and shape as a standard SD chip, but it means that you can now go "cordless"... no more untangling cords, no more searching for the right cord to download your photos... (is this my camera cord, or my cell phone cord? Or is this Amy's cord?).
No more uploading to thumb drives, to carry photos around, and share them with your buds. No more trying to figure out how to get your photos to your SD compatible phones...
Everyone I've shown this hybrid chip to, has been impressed and asked where to get one. I think I'm creating my own private little "run on the market" on these new USBCards myself.
And now I'm prepared to spread that virally through AR..(insert maniacal laughter here... followed by hacking and coughing.... and wheezing... i'm not as young as I used to be).
