Today Micron announced that it is ending its Lexar removable storage business. They are trying to sell off that part of the business now. It may be that Sandisk, Sony, Transcend or even Toshiba might be picking up the business and we will continue to have Lexar memory cards available to photographers.

The reasoning given for the change in the press release was to focus on “increasing opportunities in higher value markets and channels.” Simple lame man terms? There ain’t enough money in memory cards.
