The Most Amazing Tech Improvement This Year
January 29, 2009
For the past few years I have attended the Consumer Electronic Show, but this year I finally got fed up with the crowds and having two hour plus lines at the airport to board the plane. .
So this January I did not attend, but I have been following the reports on new products there and this is without question one of the best technical tech improvements I have seen announced.
This new SD format, called SDXC, once it is mature, will allow you to have up to 60 HD movies on one tiny SD card. This makes shooting video without tape very practical. SD card size is increasing to 2 Terabytes and write speeds of 300 megs per second!!
In case you don’t know what a terabyte is, it is 1,000 Gigabytes. It still is hard to believe that on a tiny piece of material the size of your thumb you will be able to hold about 200 Blue Ray CDs. Just amazing!
It will provide the storage and speed needed to save weeks of high-definition video, years of photo collections, and months of music in mobile phones, cameras, and camcorders.
