So, what’s the deal with the D? Why is it all, disclike? Last I checked, SD cards weren’t any sort of disc. What’s going on? In this video, we find out.

Awesome that SD association is notably less greedy than other media standard enforcers! I'm inclined to say the SD card really deserves its very lasting place in multimedia recording, basically having matured more and more to do away with more format wars (remember compact flash?).

Imagine the innovation we could have if we didn't have the stuffing blocks of capitalism and replaced it with something more democratic and egalitarian so the incentive is to make the best thing rather than rent seeking? 😩

After watching your fascinating video, l took my Toshiba SD card and found a weird thing. Why Toshiba doesn't use the standard image of the SD logo? Instead of having some gap, the "D" in their label is a whole letter. The maker of this logo doesn't use it right is odd. I wonder what the story behind this is.

Always learning something new. I always thought the SD was named after SanDisk.

Disney might be avoiding the DVD-Video logo because of their proprietary DRM ("X-Project"), since it technically violates the standard.

Mrs Richards: " I paid for a room with a view!"
Basil: (pointing to the lovely view) "That is Torquay, Madam."
Mrs Richards: "It's not good enough!"
Basil: "May I ask what you were expecting to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? the Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically past?…"
Mrs Richards: "Don't be silly! I expect to be able to see the sea!"
Basil: "You can see the sea, it's over there between the land and the sky."
Mrs Richards: "I'm not satisfied. But I shall stay. But I expect a reduction."
Basil: "Why?! Because Krakatoa's not erupting at the moment ?

I always conflated “SD” with “SanDisk” which explained the disk in SD for me. Now I’m just confused.

And why do many companies call these cards “Trans Flash”?!

Chris Comley 23/09/2021 - 11:35 Chiều

"Disney DVD" doesn't conform, as I have been told, I have no firm data, so they don't have to march in step with rules about "not forcing the viewer to watch the adverts at the start".

SanDisk has some pretty smart branding because I always thought SD just stood for their brand

The pitchfork of knowledge – LOL! Plus your rant about "how much data do you really need" at the 8 minute mark made me giggle as well. Back in the day I ran a BBS on a Commodore 64 with a 300 baud modem. I was thinking about to upgrading to a 1200 baud modem when they came out with 9600 and we were all saying to each other "that's insane – who needs 9600?"
