12 GB Memory Card: $14,000!

This is an ad I saw on the internet for a 12 GB Compact Flash memory card:

“If you’re into serious digital photography you have to pre-order a Pretec 12 GB CF card. “These new cards will be available as 3 GB, 4 GB, 6 GB and 12 GB. The first three cards (3, 4 & 6 GB) are available in Japan as of today, the larger 12 GB card by the end of the year. Despite lower NAND flash prices these cards are still unbelievably expensive, the 3 GB card is 166,000 YEN ($1,490), the 4 GB card is 207,00 YEN ($1,860), the 6 GB card is 525,000 YEN ($4,700), the 12 GB card is expected to be 1,659,000 YEN ($14,900).They’re only $14.900! Before taxes. All joking aside, it’s nice to see they are squeezing that much capacity into a compact flash card. Of all camera storage media, compact flash is my favorite and the most economical.”
