Jen's folding SanDisk card
SanDisk Ultra II SD memory card
I don't have the foggiest idea where my camera's cable is. And you know what? I couldn't care less.
You see, the day I bought my digital camera, I also put in an order for a 2GB SanDisk Ultra II SD memory card. To the untrained eye, it might seem like any old SD card. But snap it at the middle, and you'll see it's also a USB flash drive.
Using it couldn't be any simpler. The SD card works in my camera like any other. When I'm ready to download my pictures, I pop the card out, snap one side under the other, and slip the prong into any USB port. The files can then be copied over just like any data. No muss, no fuss.
It's especially useful when visiting with friends and family. This Thanksgiving, for example, I'll be able to take pictures to my heart's content, and when it's time to leave, I can drop the photos from the weekend right onto my mom's computer so she can remember how wonderful her daughter is even as I pull out of the driveway.
