Chris Marquardt and the dirt cheap SD card

Episode 1607

Chris says that there's a consumer alert for a 512 GB microSD card for $6 incl. shipping. But as you can guess, that's a total ripoff because a name brand is over $100. Chris ordered one and it, indeed, was a fraudulent memory card. Complete counterfeits. Chris says that often, those cards are defects that have been "declared" as smaller cards, and sell them for cheap. The fraudsters get access to the broken cards and then reflashes them again to make them look larger than they are. 

Reminder: Our Photo Assignment is CLOSE UP

Episode 1599

Chris isn't with us today, he's traveling. But he wanted us to remind everyone about the latest photo assignment -CLOSEUP. Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "CLOSEUP" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "CLOSEUP" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
