I've always thought about buying a USB/CF flash drive during say, black friday, and then designing a board around it. Guess there's more risk in that unless you know what chip is inside the drive beforehand.

Nice find though, I remember trying to find the flash parts (samsung?) that the iPod nano used after a web site showed photos of its internals.

Slight clarification.  That's a 4Gbit chip (512Mb x 8), not 4GByte.  Very cool though, that 1Gb x 8 is available!
