There hasn’t been a lot to report vis-à-vis of memory cards lately. With the exception of the occasional limited time price drop and creative idea (like the partitioned “Wise” CF Card from Amulet with its instant backup capabilities) the last few months have been somewhat silent.

Enter Toshiba and its new Exceria Pro series of SDHC cards that will offer “the world’s fastest data write speeds,” and we again have something to get excited about in the world of storage. Read more…
