On 21st August 2009 I bought a SanDisk Extreme III 16GB CF card, which cost me £60.49. Just over a year later I look them up in order to buy a second one - expecting the prices to have fallen - and they've gone up in price! The cheapest I can find one (from a known or reputable seller) is £66.99.
What's going on here? My previous experience with anything storage memory-related is that the prices drop considerably over time.
Is there a world shortage or something?
