Re: Flash Based Storage Has Expire Date

c. no readers are available for them, same thing can happen to flash-based storage.

Come on, not again this old argument that one day there will be no reader for old devices. Most card readers still have slots for card types that are rarely used for years, e.g. SmartMedia, xD and so on. Even old 3,5" discettes are still readable by most computers. All these predictions "in some years media type X will not readable anymore because there are no devices" are nothing more than speculations. As every new media type is spread widely I doubt that you cannot read e.g. CF cards in 15 years.
