The Evolution Of USB Memory Sticks

By Jody L Melvin

Companies have advanced in making new ways to save information that was made on the computer. We started with large floppy disks in the 80s and early 90s then we moved to smaller floppy disks. Now there are such things as jump drives, and Sony came out with USB memory sticks. This will be a history review of the memory sticks.

In 1998, this company came out with memory sticks which are flash memory cards. The original memory sticks were able to hold 128MB and now hold up to 32 GB. They continued to grow to the more high speed pro for digital and video cameras.

The use of memory sticks are to be used as storage media for portable devices. This would then be connected to a computer in order to access what is on the memory stick. This would be for such things like video cameras, digital cameras, PDAs, cellular phones, and Sony laptops.

The first memory stick was the size comparable to a piece of chewing gum. It is not made anymore, and now, new models have been made. They expanded the ability of these sticks, and two companies joined to form the memory stick pro. The people who could use the pro stick were able to use the first memory stick because they were formatted the same.

There was the formation of the Memory Stick duo which was formed due to the need to meet demands for a smaller flash memory card for cellphones, playstations, and cameras. There is now the Memory Stick pro duo which has replaced the duo.

After that, the company made even smaller memory sticks. These are called the Memory Stick micro which still can hold up to 32 MB. This shows how much we have advanced in this area of technology.

Many people need to use computers and electronics everyday, and it is best to have a trustworthy product which can save the information one wants saved. People take their information very seriously when it comes to their documents, photos, music, and so many other things which is why this company has taken such measures to produce a strong product. Memory sticks have been used since 1998. They have evolved over the years to produce new products to keep up with the pace and speed that has occurred in the world of technology. They can now hold 32MB, and they are very compact in size.
