32GB Micro SD Card

My droid 3 has a maximum SD card capacity of 32GB. When I got the phone, the 32GB micro SD cards were more than 2x the price of a 16GB card. I got a 16GB card.

I looked at current prices. Now, the 32GB micro SD cards are only 30%-50% more than the 16GB ones, and the same price I paid 6 months ago.

There’s no need for me to upgrade. I still have spare room, and probably should clean up and delete some stuff. When my contract expires in mid-2013, I’ll probably be getting a 64GB or 128GB memory card! Moore’s law is nice!  Computers are one of the least-regulated areas of the economy, enabling rapid progress.

I got a 3TB Seagate external HD in August 2011. However, it’s USB 2.0 and not 3.0. My new PC has a USB 3.0 port. Sometime in the next 6-18 months, 5TB drives should start becoming common. That’s when I’ll upgrade.

    You poor thing! You are really slumming it with only USB 2.0!!!

    Just how much data do you have and how fast do you need it backed up?

    I’ve recently purchased a new external hard disk that was only USB 2.0. However it was very noticeably faster than my other external hard disk, because it had a higher rotational speed.

    Backing up was a joy. It was completed much faster.


    • It’s mostly torrents and retrogaming. I figure I should download what I can now, before more copyright crackdowns happen.

      If I have a fast external HD, I can seed directly from the external HD.
