Yes that title does say Gigabyte and no it’s not a typo. Since when did flash drives have more memory than my 1 year old desktop? Of course memory on things like iPods, computers, flash drives, and memory cards has continued to grow like anything else in the electronics world but when you actually stop for a second and take a look at how far we’ve advanced it’s truly amazing. I can remember when flash drives first arrived and my dad brought one home that boasted a huge 2 gigs of memory, that was huge, and it didn’t even seem like that would get outdone for a while. But nowadays we have a standard iPod video that has a 160 gig hard drive, a hard drive that is about 4 times as large as my last computers. Of course I’ve upgraded to my 300 gig last year which is about 2/3rds full but still, it took me a while to even put a dent in the storage space. The launch of Kensington’s, worlds largest, 256 GB thumb drive clearly demonstrates how far this flash technology has come, and it makes data transfers of any capacity virtually microscopic. Of course it has it’s potential downsides too, I can’t imagine paying the record-breaking asking price of $924 for something that could be so easily misplaced, granted if you did pay almost a grand for a storage device you might take a little better care of it then the norm. For some people this will be a revelation of geekdom but for me it serves only as a milestone. The thumb drive is out now in Europe so if you wanna drop the dough you’d better find it online.
