In our digital age, fears of data being compromised is high in positions such as law enforcement and politics. Sandisk has released a solution for these woes, entitled "WORM". (Write Once Read Many=WORM).
These SD cards, currently available in only 128mb form, cannot be erased or modified once files have been put on it. Sandisk will be releasing higher capacity versions later this year.
Uses for this include police witness and suspect interviews, cash registers, electronic voting and really annoying yourself when you accidentally buy one down the shops and realise you can't use it again.
"As digital media volume has grown and surpassed traditional analogue media such as film and audio cassettes in the consumer market, law enforcement agencies and other professionals are facing rising costs and lack of supply," said Christopher Moore, director of product marketing for OEM memory cards at SanDisk.
