SD/USB flash memory   ...   elsewhere on the web , hardware

SanDisk has announced plans to release an SD card with a built-in USB connector -- eliminating the need for a card reader. Personally, I'd prefer to have my laptop have a built-in SD card slot, but I guess there are just too many flash memory card "standards" for very many computer manufacturers to actually build one of them into a laptop. (Though of course Sony includes Memory Stick and I have seen an IBM laptop that had a built-in CF slot...) Given that I can't have built-in SD on my laptop, I suppose built-in USB on the card is a reasonable solution. It just seems so inelegant.

I should have clarified -- the link is to a picture of it, not just a news story about it. Although I think the concept is inelegant, the design is pretty clever.
