Remember these? There was a time that this card was capable of storing many photographs from the new fangled digital cameras.
Now all those photos are essentially useless, hopelessly crushed JPEGS from marginal sensors mangled by overly aggressive algorithms in the early cameras we trusted with our work.
Back then, this was a top of the line model, offering whopping 8X speeds, so much faster than the CDs of the day.
Now it's just a reminder that technology marches on, briskly and inexorably and today's hot new technology is tomorrow's head-scratching curiosity. An artifact of a digital history that seems far more archaic than mere years would seem to indicate.
