Default Flash Memory prices cut in half soon?

Woo hoo! Glad I only bought one 512MB card last month, instead of two...

Quote:
from http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp.../tech_chips_dc
Two companies that dominate the lucrative market for memory chips used in digital cameras and music players are slashing prices to stoke demand and undermine emerging rivals, industry officials and analysts said.

The move by Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Toshiba Corp is a bonanza for consumers snapping up flash memory devices in increasing numbers and sets the stage for a fierce battle in the most profitable part of the memory industry.

South Korea (news - web sites)'s Samsung said the cuts, which have more than halved prices for some flash chips since October, are a long planned effort to grow the market.

But industry experts said Samsung and Japan's Toshiba are taking a pre-emptive strike against companies including Infineon Technologies AG, Hynix Semiconductor Inc and Micron Technology Inc that are trying to break the virtual duopoly.

Speaking of this sort of stuff. Do you take your card to Wolf for developing, or a cd? What do they charge per 4x6?

I was thinking of getting all of my digipics printed to put in albums and I didn't want to drain my printer.

What do you mean? That's how capitalism works, man.

You can do either. Sometimes the operators will ask that you leave the CD, but I would stick to using the Kiosks only, the quality is better that way (I know that's counter intuitive, but trust me on this). I forget what Wolf charges for 4x6's - I wanna say 36 cents a print. Walmart is 27 cents a print, iirc and the quality is just as good (better if you like matte prints instead of glossy).

Oh yeah. You mean the guys who are somehow under the impression that the guys at Apple aren't in it to make money?

I'm sure it varies somewhat by location and region, but I was at Sam's Club this weekend, and they charge 18 cents per 4x6. Not sure about any other details, but I'm going to give them a try, even though they're ~45 minutes from my house.

I'm talking about high-quality Fuji Fronteir prints on Fuji Crystal Archive paper. AFAIK Walmart is cheapest. Check the Sam's stuff to see how it's printed.

Yeah, that's the stuff I don't know. I'll check it out (eventually) and report back.

Also... Even if you go into Wolf, you have to realize that they usually have more than one printing option. They also have machines that do the prints right there - they aren't inkjet, but they aren't photo-process either. Avoid that **** like the plague. You want Fuji Fronteir prints, which are excellent. If you want prints larger than 8x10 you're ****ed though. This means you'll have to actually hand over your media to the monkeys behind the machines, and Fuji doesn't allow them to think for themselves and forces adjustments on them (unless you get lucky and your local Wolf has found a way around this). In that case, you should take your prints to a place like NC TriColor in Garner. I just tried them out for the prints I'm doing for my show, and they came out great. All the photos will be 8x12 minimum, and some will be much larger.

Fuji is allright but I prefer Noritsu/Kodak for mine. Pref in color.

This is good, my camcorder can only take 9 pictures before it runs out of space...I'll be getting a 512mb card soon.
