Actually, the prices have since come down. My flash card went belly up so I
replaced it with a new style cart that holds a micro SD. I got the cart, 4gb
SD, USB card reader and shipping for less than $20 US. If you have a DS, you
should definitely be hacking it. I now have an 8 gb micro SD and I carry the
entire Wikipedia, less images, around in my DS. And that only takes up half
of the SD. I have two Bible apps for a total of 6 translations, a quotes
wiki, an open source dictionary, 100 of my favorite mp3's, 3 hours of
television and a movie. Oh yeah, and a wifi sniffer. And I still have room.
If you want to know more, contact me off list.

IIRC, Matt Howe (the author of the above) indicated that for about $50 in
accessories, you can endow your Nintendo DS with the capabilities he
outlines above.
