    Remember, this is 8 Gigabit, and they are talking about a single chip , not the actual memory stick. They do give an example of how a memory card with their chips can hold up to 16 gigabyte:
    The 8Gb NAND flash memory will allow designs of up to 16Gigabytes (GB) of storage on a single memory card. That 16GBs of memory translates into storage of up to 16 hours of DVD quality video or 4,000 (five minutes per song) MP3 audio files.

    This is just a prototype anyways, their factories aren't producing chips that small yet, but should be soon hopefully.
