It sure is tempting. The speed is 15Mb/s read, up to 6Mb/s write. It can fit right on your key chain, so it won’t get lost. The whole thing is about the size of a quarter.

Mini Canon EOS 450D is a USB flash driveThis 2GB flash drive is just a few inches wide, but it’s full of intricate details, even lens markings and a viewscreen that we hope can actually light up. The lens is removable and has a USB jack inside. It’s awesome. It’s neat. Cool. Dare I say it? It’s adorable.

It comes with an extension cord to fit it into your USB port. Apparently it’s a promotional item from Canon, which is why you’ve never seen one. But you may be able to find one on eBay. You’ll pay dearly for it(there’s one up right now for $103).

They contain 2GB of storage space and you can choose from BBQ pork or drumstick versions. The pork will cost you $9.99 while the drumstick costs a couple dollars more. Compared to the real thing these have twice the data and 100% less fat.
