  1. I don’t remember 512mb flashdrive ever costing $159.95, they were like 20 when they came out, and even if it did I doubt it would be on the same page and year that a 40 gig hard drive costs $269.95.

    • Some people just have terrible memories. In 2005 my wife and I bought a 256mb SD card for our terribly overpriced digital camera and they were still $50+. It wasn’t until later that year that the prices started really coming down. And at the time we thought we were getting a killer deal by replacing our 64mb that we had bought the year before for around the same price.

    • I spent ~$200 for a 2gb usb stick in 2004. I was in uni at the time and thought it was definitely worth the price. until all my friends started buying portable hdds later that year for the same price.
