• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Samsung is first to announce a Flash storage device that aims to completely replace the traditional hard drive in some mass market mobile computers. The 32 GB solid state disk (SSD) drive comes in a 1.8" form factor and reads data at more than twice the speed of hard drives. Best of all: The SSD is promised to consume 95% less power than a hard drive.
that's insane!

As it's 1.8" we're more likely to see a flash based 32GB regular iPod... as it uses a 1.8" HD at the moment. That would still be pretty cool though!

They have 16GB flash memory now, it's only a matter of time when some bright spark pairs 2 of the 16GB chips to make a 32GB one.

Anyways...
The 16GB flash memory is in the form of a USB key

I've read about a couple of companies using flash drives as the main drive in laptop computers. Still less than what most laptops currently have which seems to be around 100GB. But as they continue to improve I wouldn't be surprised to see more and more systems use flash memory.

There's a 64 GB version in the works, too. Engadget reports that a 64 GB CF card is out. When those come down in price, I'm going to get an IDE-CF adapter and replace this PowerBook's internal drive.
Anyone interested could have a 64GB iPod mini... of course, I believe those 64GB CF cards are about $3000...
