128 GB on an SD card? We all knew it was only a matter of time, but wow, it's still impressive to see. 128 GB memory cards are kind of like 3 TB hard drives...the market for the number of people that truly need that much storage is small, but if you need it, you'll be thrilled to have this much storage in a small package. Oh, it's $699 USD. That might turn off a few people...
