    Staples has them now. I got 4 of them. No reabates!

    Just FYI for those who need them.

    Thanks! Fry's had 'em at that price last weekend, but limited to stock on
    hand. I got the last one. Or the one they said was the last one. There
    were two in inventory, according to the computer, but I think I saw the guy
    in the stock cage snag one of the two before handing mine over... :-(

    Memory cards of ALL types have become extremely cheap within the last year.

    I just bought (shudder the thought) a SONY (hate to even say the name)
    memory-stick pro-duo at 2GB for $54. While that's not quite as cheap, it is
    actually even CHEAPER, considering that those are the EXTREMELY thin,
    extremely small cards that only a year or so ago were about $289!!

    I'm not sure why, but memory prices are just plummeting, big-time...on all
    fronts.

    Good news for everyone.

  4. Incredible isn't it. I just spent 18ukp on a 2GB CF to replace the
    140ukp 1Gb I bought for my camera two years ago. It's -ve inflation like
    this which has kept western economies afloat in recent years. Shame it
    doesn't apply to energy costs and house prices too.

  5. Except for computer memory. Those prices have actually risen. Now that
    Vista will be available, and requiring more memory, the manufacturers will
    be taking advantage of us for awhile. And the memory stick is cheaper that
    $54 at Sam's this week.

  6. Vista's unlikely to be a big factor. Relatively few people will be
    running it for a long time to come (buyers of new PCs & premature
    adopters only). More important is probably the introduction of DDR2
    memory, so less DDR memory is being produced. That means supplies of
    both get pinched and prices of both go up.
