For The ovious reason , I haven’t the money , I already own a DS , Why would I need a another one ? . And the last reason I’m not getting a DSI , it wont play GBA Games . So What if It has a camera or 2 . Unless it’s going to play new DS Games that wont be backwards compatible with my original DS , I ant buying it , at least right now .

I bet the camera built into the DSi is only 1 or 2 Mega Pixels , heck a cheap cell phone can do that , Nintendo could have made the DSi have a SD card slot for listening to MP3 audio or maybe a movie player function for watching small mp4 videos .

All I’m saying is I’m not buying one , unless it has cool new features my DS currently doesn’t have.

All online storage sites should at least give you 1GB for free. I believe the web is becoming more complex and people want to share more complex files. With HD content becoming more available thanks to the SD markII and more people are shooting raw photos , it makes sense to have more room for storing pictures. Web Pages are no longer just places to read info , more and more people are using them as a way to connect with family and friends, media is a big part of that . I’m tired of these sites like Flickr and drop.io that only give you 100MB of free space. Google gives you more on gmail and picasa web albums . Why should I pay for more space on Flickr or drop.io ? Drop.io also seems to only allow it’s free service for one year wtf ? Now unless i read the fine print wrong , this is a idea sucks. Perhaps drop.io is better suited for short term storage .

I prefer tmohost.com it allows a lot of room for free. Now i am not sure , but the last conversation I had with the guy who runs it , said to keep it under 1GB. I suppose he means the total amount of space , but he could also mean the file size . Anyways , I suppose e if you look hard enough you can find more space for free , but the 100MB spaces need to grow .
