Disney to sell movies on MicroSD cardsForget DVDs, forget Blu-Ray. Disney and Panasonic see the future and that future is movies on flash cards. That’s right, those same tiny memory cards that you buy for your digital camera/MP3 player will soon be available with films pre-loaded on.

SanDisk has announced the launch of four new slotRadio cards from Billboard that each feature 1,000 tracks. Each of the cards covers a different music genre and will sell for $39.99. The genres covered include rock, country, oldies, and Hip Hop/R&B.

ricky-kingston.jpgKingston Technology is trying to connect with God knows which demographic by announcing today a microSD memory card preloaded with Ricky Martin material. You’ll find the Kingston 1GB microSD card with an accompanying USB reader kit available for around $11.

Now we really don’t have anything against Ricky Martin, but come on Kingston. This is a pretty lame promotion. If you must buy into it however you’ll find the 1GB microSD card loaded with Martin items like the tracks “Somos la Semilla,” “Tu Recuerdo,” concert images and a music video that opened his “Black & White” world tour.
