I'd hoped to buy an 8GB SDHC microSD card for my Freerunner but ordered
a non-micro card and got too lazy to return it to newegg.com for an
exchange since the bigger card works in my laptop when I need to
transfer files between my PC and a coworker's PC.

Did anyone else test an 8GB card yet? If not, I'll order another one on
the weekend.
