Cheap Memory Card Readers for less than a dollar

The usb functionality on my digital camera stopped working recently and I needed a memory card reader for my computer.  Luckily there are loads of very cheap memory card readers on eBay.  I picked up a little semi-transparent blue SD Card reader for $.89.  I got it about a week later and it works just fine right out of the box.  Just be careful removing the plastic caps because the plastic is thin and can break easily.  The cool thing about little readers like this is that they can be used as a flash drive once you put a memory card in them.   Somehow these little gizmos are so cheap that the ebay sellers can afford to ship a “bran-new” gizmo from China to the US for under a buck.   Here are some eBay search results.  At these prices there’s not much to lose.
