Ever-cheaper SD cards are the mobile solution

The price of those little SD memory cards continues to plummet. You can now get them via Amazon for a startlingly low £7.75. How on earth does Argos think it can justify a £69.99 pricetag?

At prices like these, there’s almost no point thinking about more complex ways to connect your devices. Engadget has details today of a video recorder from SanDisk which can use ‘any composite video source such as your set-top box, DVD player, or TiVo’. Record your video, take the card out, pop it into your PDA, and away you go. (And yes, this is finally happening – I’m starting to notice more and more people watching video on the train.)

Add some kind of EPG / Sky+ functionality to simplify the recording process, and I’ll bite your hand off.
