SanDisk made a huge breakthrough this year at the technology expo in Taipei with their 256 GB USB flash drive that gives you all the storage capacity you could want without forfeiting size. This device is the highest capacity flash drive to date and has transfer speeds of 100 MB/s along with its own encryption software.
While the price tag may seem a little daunting, you’re getting around $1 for each GB of capacity which in all fairness is pretty cool. External hard drives better look out. Their days might be numbered.
