A Penny for Your Thoughts?

Actually, this 8 GB drive is closer to the size of a nickle.

Solid state flash memory is driving the development of ever smaller spinning drives. The mechanical discs have to be priced a lot better than the solid state memories of comparable size, if they have a chance to survive in the ultra-competitive marketplace.
