    I understand the memory used in our little memory cards is a specialized
    type of EEPROM called flash EEPROM given the way it is programmed (data is
    written to it).

    I read that it has a limit on the number of times it can be written to
    because the stress takes its toll on the tiny capacitor in each cell after
    numerous writes. I am not clear on the mean number of writes before failure.

    I'm also curious on how long the card will hold its data before the charge
    on the tiny capacitors leak off rendering the data to garbage.

    Thanks, John
