I’ve been looking around at the state of memory these days and it’s nothing short of stunning. Things are moving so fast that it’s hard to keep up. For example, take a look at this 3mm thick 16GB drive from PQI, Taiwan. The thing is a USB 2.0 capable drive with a retractable USB connector. When you’re done using it, you can just slide it in your wallet. How cool is that?
