Pretty cool, but you can get a flashdrive with that amount of memory for $9-$10 at Fry's. Pretty big premium to pay for the Baylor emblem, especially since it will be obsolete within a year or two (not really a keepsake).

512 really isn't that small. Just because there are larger flash drives made doesn't make smaller ones obsolete. 512MB of memory is enough to store pretty much anything other than ripped DVD's(or any other really high quality video) or a whole bunch of songs/high quality images. Most end users will likely never use all 512MB in the devices lifetime.

They said the same thing about floppies a couple of years ago. :)

a couple of years ago?

this must have been before I got Microsoft Office 3 for my Macintosh IIsi. What a relief it was to see "Insert Disk 42" dialog box pop up.

512 MB will be a servicable amount of memory for quite some time. File sizes aren't growing that much.
