    I can find time to change the card on my camera for a lot less money.

  5. I see the price as $599 for a 16 GB drive. Seems like a decent price
    and bound to get better.

  6. The OP said "* approx $124 per GB". Given that, my calculator gives me
    $1984.

    The site at the OP's link gives me $599 for the drive, or about
    $37.44/GB. It also says the drive is "AVAIABLE!", so you obviuosly can
    avai yourself of the drive :)

    Anyway, I guess I like Brian's numbers better.

    After all that, I need my afternoon coffee.
