I bought a 512 mb card a year ago for my phone, it cost me about $50... I hate to look at them now for less than $20 for twice the capacity.

I almost lost it in my room once when it ejected from my phone with such force that it launched it behind a dresser

I have miss placed it more than once while testing it and using it in various devices. It doesn't take much to hide the little sucker.

Out of curiosity would this work with ReadyBoost? After I bought Vista I was tempted to buy a card reader and 166X card for ReadyBoost. I decided against it and just bought a new thumb drive.

I could not tell you as I don't have Vista yet, sorry.

you'd want to use a faster flash drive than this for ReadyBoost as you'd want at least a 166x device for ReadyBoost... something like this http://www.legitreviews.com/article/543/1/

Looking at the charts Bubba made it looks like the Kingston drive peaked out at ~50x performance, so getting the Super Talent Exelerator (166x) or their 200x USB drive as it would be a ton faster and a better solution for ReadyBoost.

The thumb drive I picked up was an AData PD7 4GB. I wanted a new thumb drive anyway and the ReadyBoost compliance was a bonus. No big deal since I've installed and uninstalled Vista twice since I got in January. ReadyBoost is a joke anyway so now I just have a fast (200X) thumb drive.
