RAID-Style CompactFlash Card

RAID-Style CompactFlash Card
I'm sure to jinx myself as soon as I write this, but here goes: I don't typically have a problem losing CF cards. What I do have a problem with, on occasion, is bad media creating corrupted photographs. And so it is with very eager personal self interest that I pass along news of a Japanese firm (Amulet) and its CF card with built in backup. It's simple, really: take a 64gig card and divide the data into two partitions of 32GB. If one part of the memory (random access memory, mind you) fails, you can still have access to the duplicate of the images that lives on the other partition of the card. It still does you no good if your problem is losing cards, but it's a step in a great direction. Get it to market soon, please!
