Proving USB drives can both be ugly and functional Corsair rolled out today the Flash Padlock. This manual security code dependent device is available in 1GB ($30) and 2GB ($40) capacities.
What is perhaps most interesting about the Corsair Flash Padlock is that you can set a PIN up to 10 digits long for accessing the drive’s contents. You have to then enter this PIN on the keypad built into the drive’s body. The Flash Padlock also seems noteworthy for its security feature of automatically locking itself when you remove it from an attached PC.
Corsair sees its drive as being impervious to those who might be able to hack a software secured USB flash device. We can see that – I guess we’ll have to resort to the “beat the PIN out of the person” method instead to gain unauthorized access.
