A vast majority of high tech gadgets on the market utilize some sort of memory card to store data, music, images, or programs. Two of the main issues with the widespread use of these memory cards is that there is no universal standard, and you need to be careful when storing/transporting all of these somewhat sensitive cards.
Digital photographers may need to carry several high capacity memory cards with them in order to capture all of their images before they can get back to a PC to unload their cards for reuse. It is examples like this that make the item up for review of great interest.

Memory Card Travel Case is a rugged aluminum case with a molded rubber liner intended to keep your various memory cards safe, secure, and organized. As pictured below, the case is quite stylish, and the contoured aluminum shell gives the initial impression that this would be a rugged means for keeping your memory cards organized.

"Digital Foci is the set of points where you enjoy and manage all of your digital content. Digital represents all of the different forms of digital media and data you use everyday. Foci (pronounced “foe-sigh”) is the plural form of the word ‘focus’ and symbolizes the many distinct points where light and sound converge and diverge. It is at these digital focus points, these foci, where you view and share your digital photos, watch your digital video, listen to your digital music, and access your digital files."
