This deal from 2008 is turning out to be one of my best ever

I know it's not a big deal but....

On 10-31-08 I followed a dealmac link to a newegg deal for a 16GB Kingston flash drive for $15.49 shipped.

At the time, flash prices were dropping like a stone and I was sure that I'd see a better price in just a few weeks.

Here it is about 15 months later and I have yet to see another 16GB flash drive at that price - certainly not a name brand...

I still use it everyday. It was my first and only flash drive purchase to date.

that is all...

It's slow today...

I hear you. I'm stupified that we haven't seen better (or equivalent) prices since that deal!

I'm stupified - but it never affected my hearing. I guess I'm safe!

I remember getting a 16GB OCZ from Amazon for $9.99 in November '0, pof course that was after rebates.

I think I have the same Kingston drive! I got mine on BF from Kingston the same year.

I thought I was crazy... seemed that a 16GB drive could be had for $20, but now costs more like $30.

There most be a shortage of memory for some reason.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
