The iPad Is 5 Years Old This Week, But You Still Don't Need One
Windows Phone 8.1, Lumia 920, no contract here. $200 bought and paid for. Does everything I need including Internet, GPS, photos, OneDrive sync, all the business apps I need, and most of the popular apps I don't need. And calls!
Dad has the Lumia 635 which does all of the same things, just a little slower with an ok camera, for $70.

"Self-Healing" NAND Flash Memory That Can Survive Over 100 Million Cycles
That's a good point... I've read a lot of comments from people freaking out about being able to bring these on a plane.
I was once boarding a plane and accidentally scuffed my feet across the carpet. I brushed my hand by someone else and triggered a static arc that must have been close to 50,000 degrees. The plane was still able to take off. True story.
