Submission + - Why is RAM so much more expensive than flash?

johnmrowe writes: "Crucial quote $37 for a 2GB Secure Digital card but $626 for 2GB RAM for a Mac Pro — seventeen times the price! We all know about economies of scale but this is something else. Why is RAM so much more expensive than flash? Is there some fundamental difference in the cost of manufacture or did they catastrophically over-switch from RAM to flash production? And can we expect to see RAM prices coming down as manufacturers switch back?

Surely this must be effecting everyone.
