Microsoft is upping the ante in the mobile electronics arena with new models and features for use with its Zune iPod-fighting multimedia player.

Toshiba has been busy figuring out how to cram even more memory into the widely popular SD and Micro SD formats – they have stretched the capacity to 16 and 32GB for the latest SDHC capacity and 8GB in the MicroSDHC format.
According to Toshiba’s Japanese press release, the 16GB SDHC will run you about $350 and will be available in October 2007. The 32GB SDHC monster will be available for double that price, or seven hundred bucks, but y’all are going to have to wait until January 2008 for the biggest card on the block.
For those of you with the need to store lots of photo and media on the go (and have a player which supports the MicroSDHC format), Toshiba didn’t forget you! Their announcement of the 8GB SHDC capacity will be a welcome message for mobile developers as well. While the 2GB capacity of MicroSD today is just fine for most people, wouldn’t you rather have your entire iTunes library on a convenient MicroSD card the size of half a postage stamp?

Most people think that all memory is generic, and pretty much the same. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, if you’re building a system to be reckoned with (and I know that many of you are) you don’t want to skimp in this department. It can be tempting: the difference in price between high-quality, performance oriented RAM and a couple of sticks of average memory can be in the hundreds of dollars. That’s alot to shell out for something that has very similar, if not the same, numbers on the side of the package. But consider this: in every other computer component you’ve assembled for your machine, you get what you paid for. Why would memory be any different?
Pretty soon, you’ll be much less worried about dropping your laptop. This is because if the hard drive inside of it uses flash memory, it probably won’t break.
