That SD card is the same size that fits in your Palm Pilot or your digital camera, i.e., roughly the size of a man’s thumbnail. And the packaging, consisting of 80 lb cardboard stock and dual-bond plastic SO STRONG that it takes a BOXCUTTER to get through it, is BIGGER THAN a SMALL TELEVISION.

Oil to make that plastic, trees felled to provide the cardboard backing… couldn’t they have made a nice game of Boggle
