You are very short sighted at all the uses this card could be used for... not just photography. It will sell faster than it can be produced at this price I imagine for a while, just not to people like you. Don't worry, it will come down to your price after a few years. Does no one remember the days when computers cost outrageous amounts?! Remember when the Macintosh II cost $12,000 and had a whopping 1mb of memory.

If I want to store terabytes of pictures I can write them to 300GB
hard drives that are available everywhere for cheap. Or to 300GB
tapes if we're talking about long-term archival storage.

If, on the other hand, I want to use something to take tons of
pictures at a sports event, I'll simply buy a couple of 40GB
storage units and 2-3 high speed 2GB flash cards. Problem solved.

The point was that this card is beyond any reason in terms of
pricing, and that's not the wisest marketing thing to do.
