With mainstream 2.5-inch solid state drives typically capping out at 4TB, it’s unbelievable that 1024GB of storage can be crammed onto something that’s roughly the size of a fingernail. Not only is it possible, but it’s now beginning to make an official appearance at some retailers, inviting you to stow every Switch game on a teeny-tiny microSD card. expand full story
