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  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
