Default Just an idea...

Why haven't they made some sort of mini-computer storage thing. What it would do is have slots for all the flash cards, you press a button and it takes everything from the card and puts it into a large hard drive (20+ GB) hard drive. It wouldn't need to be fast or really fancy, just something you can use for times when you don't have a computer and you don't want to spend $1000 one a really expensive 2 GB CF card. It wouldn't even have to be portable, you can have it just with a wall socket. Although it would be nicer if you could have it portable
If you buy a 20 GB harddrive for your computer it will only run you $40 or so. And a typical card reader would only cost another $40. So why don't they add a simple CPU and sell it for $200? I personnally would buy it, it would save lots of time you would never ever have to worry about runner out of space (unless you took millions of pictures).

Do they already have these? Am I missing something that would make something like impossible?
