    Nice. I thought people agreed a while ago though that the SD card slot was basically an internal USB and would continuously draw power? I hope I'm wrong on this.

    Makes me wish I had gotten the 13" :p

    Not really, but it's still pretty cool. I got the 11" ultimate anyway.

    Don't know about the new MBA but the retina's SD slot is not USB but sata II speed capable.

    Those are usually dirt slow compared to the 450MB/sec of the built in SSD.

    if you just want some extra space to store movies on for a trip or regular data then it would easily be plenty fast.

    But plenty fast enough for iTunes and file storage. I get 55MB/s write and 80MB/s read with my SanDisk extreme pro.

    They should have at least included a proper tiny removing tool.
    The barbaric removing approach from the video is just that, barbaric...

    As if the people who they aim for will remove the card. This product is meant to be low profile so you can leave the card in and don't have to remove it. If you want to remove it frequently than this clearly isn't meant for you. You need to stick to the standard sd cards that stick out and therefore are easy to remove. Using a paperclip is a very good idea if you want to remove it occasionally since nearly everybody has access to them.

    Brilliant idea.

    What's the roadmap for microSD beyond 64GB?

    It's not sold out. Scroll down the page a little bit and you'll see that only the first 25 sold for $25. You can still buy it for $30.

    Did you read that page? It takes time to get funding, manufacture, assemble, test and then deliver the product.

    I'm a backer! Got the $30 level, free shipping to the U.S.

    Love, love, love Kickstarter! Looking forward to the Minidrive Pro this November, and Wasteland 2 next November!

    It is just a micro SD card adapter, guys, good idea, though and I bet it will be be like a dollar or two on ebay soon once everybody follows the idea.
