An iPod just bigger than a credit card, that'll be the day.
i wonder how easy it is to break one of those and lose all your data
I seriously doubt that they will be as thin as a credit card.
Howard raises a good point. I don't think that would be easily snapped/broken in half, but the drives must be reasonably fragile.
Even so, for $15 bucks for a card, just back up your data often and you'll be fine. If marketed right, I think these things could become VERY popular.
Where IBM went wrong with their Microdrives, perhaps?
Only the card is credit-card size - they didn't say how big the reader is. Probably the reader is iPod-size anyway. Still tiny for a hard drive, but essentially we're just talking about a Zip drive except much smaller and with much larger capacity (eventually).
so take a look at www.storcard.com and you'll see that the reader is pcmcia, and also the cards/drives are somewhat flexible with no loss of data.....
Sweet! Then theoretically they should be able to make the iPod quite a bit thinner with this technology, if they can fit both the card and reader into a PCMCIA card...
