SDXC Memory Cards

SDXC Memory Cards
New SDXC memory card spec supports 2TB capacities
via GIZMODO and Dannychoo:

The SD association has announced a new card spec dubbed SDXC (eXtended Capacity) that can support memory of up to 2TB with read/write speed 104MB per sec.According to their calculations, that would mean you could 100 high-def movies, 60-hours of HD recordings, or 17,000 fine mode photos on a portable device. Again, keep in mind that this is spec at this point - not an actual product. But we could see something based on it as early as next year. Obviously, there aren't many devices out there that could make full use of it right now, but a card with this kind of capacity and bus speed could pull the industry forward.

Q: ... and like a Dannychoo fella comment "SSD drives dead before they even began..."
