Compact Flash card or a Honda Civic car?

Interesting choice to have to make. (Not that its a choice I have to make).

A car or a Compact Flash card?

Pretecs 12GB CompactFlash card costs more than a new Honda Civic – Engadget – www.engadget.com

12 GB is impressive for such a small card. Never mind I probably couldn’t use it with any of the gadgets that I have that use CF-cards. (Cameras and PDAs). But when it sells for ~15.000 dollars I just have to wonder who can afford it and what they might use it for. Is the target group millionair-geeks or some business situation where the use warrants the cost. Anyone know?

    Medium format and large format digital RAW photography comes to mind: I would imagine Phase One [1] RAW files to easily be 100 Mb size, for example (my guesstimate)…

    This 12GB card will probably only be used by embedded systems manufacturers/flight data recorders/and in-flight avionics entertainment system. But you’re right, their is not currently much demand for this capacity
