Goodbye Readyboost

I gave Readyboost a shot. I thought it was going to make Vista perform better. The multiple web pages describing its benefits had me convinced that Readyboost was worth trying.

I don't get it. I think I may have expected too much. I thought I would see some sort of difference. As far as I can tell, Readyboost is useless. Remember those cola tests where someone was blindfolded and tried to compare one cola from another? I bet that if i sat in front of two identical laptops with same software and everything, but one used Readyboost, I couldn't tell the difference.

So now what do I do with a 2 GB Sandisk SD card?  I found that our new, and inexpensive Electrohome DVD player, shows AVI and picture content from SD cards. So I didn't waste $30 after all.
