I was perusing the clearance section at my local London Drugs today (Antikx and Grog you have to check this out!) and found something called a Netac USB-CF-Card. They had 64MB, 128, and 256MB models in the stand. Basically, it is a CF card with a female Mini-USB B port on it. It also comes bundled with a ZipLinQ with male USB A to male Mini USB B. I added my tiny male Mini USB A adapter to it to turn the ZipLinQ cable into a USB host cab le and voila I can now use my Wifi and CF card at the same time on my 1000. (Yes, I know it's cheating). Anyway, the 256MB card only set me $19.99 Canadian which I thought is pretty reasonable for the card plus ZipLinQ cable.

Here a manufacturer's photo of the card.

And is my 1000 in seventh heaven running my SD, CF, and Wifi at the same time cool.gif
Sorry for the poor quality on the picture. I couldn't get the right lighting so I had to digitally enhance it.

Some googling for "Netac USB-CF" found these 2 sites
Seems to be for sale for $12.95 and includes pic of usb cable
This site's review is dated Nov 2002, and is the same site that is linked in first post here.

Good luck finding these, except in limited quantities.
Some pics:
EDIT: $12.95 would be a decent price for just the retractable USB cable, (in some areas)
Also attached PDF manual for this gadget.

Hmm, I could sell you a whole kit of retractable cables and various adapters for USD10 smile.gif
