Sandisk to unwrap 1G Compact Flash card

Sandisk Corp. will take the wraps off a 1G-byte Compact Flash card, the highest capacity yet, at the Comdex Fall show, which is due to start next Monday in Las Vegas.

The card offers double the capacity of the company's current top-of-the-range card, a 512M-byte model that went on sale in the second quarter. The new card is expected to be available to consumers in early 2002, the company said Monday. Sandisk estimates the card will sell for about US$800 per card, which is just under double the current price of the 512M-byte card.

Higher capacity memory cards are much in demand among users of portable digital multimedia devices, such as digital still cameras, music and movie players because of the large size of files often used with the devices. The new card should enable users to store more than 1,000 digital images, more than 20 hours of digital music or several hours of video, Sandisk said.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
