Can you name your favorite songs -- say, your top 18,000?


Yeah. Me either.


Fortunately, we've got the next year to figure them out, because come 2009, Samsung plans to ship products with the world's most powerful chip for memory cards.


Samsung revealed its 64 Gb chip technology this week, saying the chip could be used to make 128 GB memory cards. The chip is designed for NAND Flash memory, which offers faster speeds and higher storage capacity than NOR flash.


That kind of flash memory could rival a hard drive, according to the BBC's article.


Toshiba isn't about to be outdone by Samsung, however, and has already said it's working on similar technology and will also be ready to ship products by 2009.
