The majority of people simply call it a memory stick, as that seems easier than using its longer, more awkward tech name – flash memory card. Memory sticks are somewhat like people who have a family tree behind them, as memory sticks family tree is populated by a myriad of products that are capable of a wide variety of tasks. For instance the memory stick PRO, the DUO, the Micro and PRO-HG.
