SanDisk has just launched the 512 GB World’s Biggest SD card. Now in a single stroke of a corrupt, non-volatile memory bit, consumers can lose 10,000 or more photos.
SanDisk also announced a memory recovery service to help customers recover images from corrupt memory cards. “It only makes sense,” said SanDisk CEO Getmore Prophet. “We want to hook customers on our memory cards and then make even more money when they lose their photos. It’s a beautiful business model.”
SanDisk would also like for consumers to upgrade to newer cameras so that they will use more megapixels and to lose more memory cards so the will have to buy replacements.
