Porsche USB flash driveMany of us would love to own a Porsche, but not all of us can afford one. The next best thing may be this Porsche flash drive. At least it’s something to flash around so you can pretend you own one.

Clothes Pin USB drive

Clothes Pin USB driveThe Clothes Pin USB drive is a handy drive to have. You can hang clothes on your clothesline with it and store your data. But you can’t do both. It won’t hold your clothes while in the USB port and it won’t save your data while drying your shirt in the wind.

But USB drives that clip to things are pretty convenient. It can hold your data while holding say, money, important papers…Could be used as a unique tie clip. Just don’t drop this into a pile of your mom’s Clothes pins.

The new film is being released on individually numbered 4GB Starfleet insignia USB drives. Yes, I too just heard ten million geeks sigh.

Uzi USB Flash Drive

Uzi USB Flash DriveWe’ve seen a Ninja weapon in USB drive form, so why not an Uzi. Of course the drive is in the clip. Where else are you going to load and reload data from?

This bad boy comes from The Get Busy Committee, a rap group who stuck their upcoming album “Uzi Does It” on uzi-shaped flash drives. Pretty clever marketing. I’ve never heard of them and it has me talking about them. This kind of music marketing gives a new spin to the term “Number one with a bullet”.

USB Man in gold and silver

USB Man in gold and silverThis guy makes quite a statement no? Rumor has it that a UFO Landed in 1947. A ramp unfolded. A door opened. And from the bright light and smoke, the USB man emerged, making contact with humanity. He is a race of 1. He is stronger than you, shinier than you and your wife is now his.

Beer courses through his veins and he pees a chemical compound that will fuel our civilization and end the energy crisis forever. Just because he can. The first human to see him reverted back to a primate state, approached by bounding on all fours, let out a chimp screech and knocked on his shiny exterior before quickly scurrying away. He’s that awesome.
