I saw someone post a deal for a 400 GB card that was down to like $60, so they seem to be coming down. And as someone who's nearly filled a 400 GB card on his Switch, I'm eager to see bigger and cheaper cards.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.

They actually announced 1TB micro SD cards a while back, but they're just now becoming available. Oh and they start at $450.

But buy 3 400gb cards at 70ish each and for 230 dollars you can also have 1.2TB

Times are getting amazing.

That's why I mentioned the hope that the prices would start dropping soon. Much larger cards getting production should hopefully see large drops in the lower end cards soon.

Switch 2 game cards gonna have massive storage sizes. No more excuses. Lol

Yeah I am with you that doesn't make any sense. A car's size doesn't correlate to it's utility or capacity. It's like saying in the future cars will get so big and cheap that it would make sense to drive a tank as a low end family car.

You don't make the chip bigger to store more information, you make storing the information smaller so the same area can store more. One of the big reasons why you don't make chips bigger is yield falls as bigger area means more likely it will contain a malfunction.

Lower end chips starts getting discounted because demand has dropped off as it's utility falls and companies are getting rid of their inventory before they become dead weight while tapering off production. It's a bit like the specials bin at the supermarket or yesterday's output at the bakery. It's still good to eat but it's going to hit the sell by date and people won't want it anymore so better sell it before that happens.

that's what I get from messaging from my phone in a hurry. lol

I miss swype.
Swiftkey's autocorrect  is always correcting words, even when I manually type them out. sometimes even after I go back and correct it. and other times the swype motion won't register the word I'm trying to type at all... not even one of the corrective actions. Actually there are tons of times where the word it selects doesn't have the letters I was swyping over, so I'm really confused how it got that a choice and not even a selection of words that use the letters I started with or swyped over.

let me go back and edit the original even though the errors have been preserved in quotes. LOL

It was pretty funny imagining a family heading out in a Tank like normal. Kids are fighting over the turret and remote machine gun. Play chicken with the loader's hatch. Mom is peering through the commander's optics to help direct dad's driving as his vision devices are nowhere as good. Depending on the tank noise this is sometimes done by kicking the driver.

Then there is the theoretical size of cars that would normalise a tanks. One possible future car size might be comparable to the Ratte.

The Future is HERE!!! I saw this at the military parade a few weeks ago, and it still boggles my mind how it's possible

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-france-flying-man/french-flying-man-crosses-channel-on-jet-powered-hoverboard-idUSKCN1UU05R

look how fast this dude flew away, how steady it looked.
This has to be a hoax of some kind.

Assuming it's legit, I wonder what the range is on a full tank
I wonder what the weight capacity is with something so small
I also wonder how loud it actually is to operate.

the article states he went 35km with refuel stop halfway
he was also flying at over 100mph... I wonder what the top speed is.

he is also currently working on a flying car.
if he can figure out how to make it work with just electricity... oh wow.

From his previous attempt a few days ago, he ran out of gas right before hitting the refueling platform so that's about it's limit. Though he blames the French Government for not allowing him to go with his original idea of refueling mid air....
