    I just paid $300 extra to get 256 GB of flash for my iPhone.

    That's about half of what I need to hold my music collection. I expect I'll have to buy an iPhone 13 someday.

    Look at the high roller!

    I should start cyberbegging so I can buy a Raspberry Pi Zero.

      I've got the cheapest strategy:

      1: A new technological achievement is announced
      2: Wait a while until the item becomes available
      3: Wait some more until it's affordable
      4: GOTO 1

    For that price you could have bought a couple of 256Gb (or maybe one 512Gb if you could find it a tiny bit cheaper) micro-SD cards and stuck them in any normal old phone.

    But, hey, if you'd rather be constrained to a new device every time you fill up the storage, feel free.
