YAMSF from Sony

Yet Another MemoryStick Format!

This tells you why they lost the portable music device market.

I am the unfortunate owner of two devices that utilize MemorySticks: a Samsung camcorder and a Sony digicam.

While every Sunday, in the fishwrap glossies, you can see stores selling other memory card formats at 1G capacity for around $59 after rebates, the MemoryStick format is stuck at $89-99 for 512MB.

Feel free to assume that I would never buy any device again that has a Sony-spec card.
