I love my USB drive but this one looks cooler

OK – I know stuff is getting smaller, but here’s a flash memory stick that’s not a stick!

It’s produced by Walletex Microelectronics. Check them out for details but it is very thin and waterproof and heat resistant. It can hold up to 2 GB (64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB). All the size of a credit card. Wow. Prices run from $29-$280.
I don’t really like carrying a thumbdrive on my keychain or wearing a necklace one. Digging into the bottom of my PC bag is a pain too. For me, in my wallet makes it very convenient.
When I see stuff like this I worry about all those computer commons in libraries where the USB port is on the back of the CPU. Too much crawling under desk – or worse finding it disabled. How frustrating. A little extension port solves legacy problems. With thumb drives becoming so ubiquitous we need to make sure we’re adapting.
