There is something that has been bugging me. Why can you buy a 2gb flash drive for $25 and have to pay 10x as much for dram ?
According to an article I just read, flash memory is supposed to be more expensive than dram.

Unlike DRAM, non-volatile memory like flash can store memory when a device's power is turned off, but flash memory chips write and read data more slowly than DRAM, have less capacity, and are also more expensive.
