Since Sandisk isn’t making killer products with pictures of hot babes surrounding them, they went for the next best thing: gold. Over in Japan, Sandisk is holding a contest for consumers who bought the Extreme IV 8GB CompactFlash or Ultra ll 4GB SDHC cards. If you bought a specially-marked package, you could win a solid gold version of your card. Incredibly exciting, I know. Totally beats meeting Michael Jordan any day.
The CF card is worth about $5000 here in the US, while that smaller, thinner Ultra II SDHC card comes in at about $2300. Since they’re non-functional and whoever wins it will probably end up losing it within a week, selling it to someone who buys gold is probably their best bet.
