Considering the size and capacity and possible shapes of memory sticks/cards, I'm surprised they haven't caught on as an alternative.
My wife gets free 5gb ones from work for free. They're the size of a credit card but the actual working bit, which snaps out, is only an inch by half an inch in size. I'm going to turn one into a collar tag for our Dog, with her name and our address and phone numbers on it. She already has a name tag and an embedded chip but I thought it would be cool.
I don;t like the idea of not being able to buy a hard copy. It would feel more like renting than actually owning it. If you see what I mean.
