I can’t say I’ve picked up much amazing or inspiring technology in the last few months. However, when jkOnTheRun mentioned SanDisk has temporarily dropped prices on the convertible SD -> USB card, I needed in!
Of the various computers I use regularly, none have card readers… meaning I either have to drag one with me or make sure I have the correct USB cables present for my devices. This little guy is a clever convenience who works as advertised — I probably should have picked one up earlier. I do have concerns I might snap him at some point, but the guys at work disagree. Time will tell.
Sadly the “deal” was 5/20 – 5/24, when I picked up the 1GB card from Amazon for about $46. Buy.com had it for a low $39, but that involved rebate hassles. If you too feel compelled, the price is still a reasonable $56.
For those of you on the fence regarding Amazon Prime, the $79 two-day shipping plan, let me tell you half my purchases arrive overnight (such as this card).
