Are you talking about flash drives (sd, cf, memory stick, etc) or actual ss drives?
As I said earlier, even Dell, who has traditionally been a very slow adopter of new tech, is selling them in their Lattitude laptops. They are still expensive, but they'll come down quickly. The Israeli armed forces use ssds in nearly everything, and Air Force and commercial airlines use ssds in black boxes and data recorders. They are available in terabyte sizes, but at the sort of prices only governments can afford. The technology has certainly endured trial by fire.
Between new battery technology, led backlights, newer 45nm processor tech (with it's exponential reduction in voltage leakage and lower operating temps), laptops are becoming VERY efficient. The past year has produced some very exciting technology.
ohh he must be thinking bout a difference in file system and compression
like say the iPhone had a fat system and u converted it to fat32 u could hold more because of the formatting, ive tried that on some mp3 players and it seems like they hold more but they become useless
btw could someone on 1.0.2 upload a copy of their mobilephone.app directory and pm me with the link, I'd appriciate it
not really on the topic of the thread but i didn't wanna start a new one just for this question. Can you use a iPhone as a portable drive? like if i wanted to put on some basic files such as word docs could you drag them into your picture folder or something and hook up to another computer and access them?
