*grin* .. I was rummaging through my laptop and came across an old memory stick I was given when I joined Solidsoft. It’s a 256Mb stick and I was pretty pleased to get it at the time. I remember signing for it .. as one would for any company asset that was assigned to them. The question is .. what is is worth today?
The reason I posed myself that question is that I came across an 8Gb one for sale on buy.com. It’s the Kingston 8gb Data Traveller USB 2.0 Flash Drive and is currently retailing for $16.99 (that’s around Â£10 in sterling). 8GB for a tenner! Wow!
I’ve posted about deals like this from Buy.com previously on this blog, and I’m checking out the weekly deals every week to see what new prices they come up with. The prices of the items I mention on this blog usually go up after the promotional period is over; but checking the sales page means you can get that extra special deal. It’s always satisfying to check the week after you bought something and see the price go back up to what it was before the promotion. Sort of reinforces the deal; doesn’t it?
So, how much was that last memory stick you bought, and what was the capacity?
