SanDisk ships its smallest USB thumb drive, the Cruzer Blade

Posted in SanDisk by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2010

SanDisk claims that its Cruzer Blade is the world’s smallest USB flash drive. We believe it. The drive is “about the size of a standard size paper clip and weighing approximately the same as a penny.”

It’s perfect for hanging from your keyring, when not getting lost in the folds of your couch and such. It’s available in capacities from 2GB to 16GB, with prices from $14.99 to $77.99. When they say small they mean small, just not in price.

Wooden 2 GB thumb drive with Post-It Notes dispenser

Wooden 2 GB thumb drive with Post-It Notes dispenserThis 2GB thumb drive is encased in White Oak. It’s basically a Jenga game piece with tiny little Post-It Notes glued on. It may not look like much, but at least it combines two items that take up room on your desk into one device.

The only problem is that when the Post-It notes run out, you’re stuck with a wooden flash drive that somehow finds it’s way into the Jenga box to mingle with all the other pieces, only to be lost forever since no one plays that stupid game. The notes, being an odd size can’t be replaced easily. All for $30.

USB Jewel Bracelet thumb driveFor those looking to be stylish while always having some extra memory around their wrist, Brando has released its new USB thumb drive with decorative crystals.

The pros: No one is going to want to steal this tacky crapped up wrist-hugger with jeweled glass bits, so your data should be safe. Cheap crap should be in again this season. The cons: You’ve got a crappy piece of jewelry and already have plenty of flash drives lying around. For $33 you could do much better and probably get 3 rows of crap “Jewels” instead of 2. It’s available in silver or gold colors and the drive supports USB 2.0, Microsoft Windows XP/Vista, MAC OS and Linux OS.

Thumb drive/bottle opener is actually useful

Thumb drive/bottle opener is actually usefulCompleting the USB flash drive trifeca for this evening is the TrekStor drive/bottle opener. Since you already have a USB drive and you probably already have a bottle opener, why not combine the two? How many times have you found yourself opening bottle after bottle, getting blitzed while moving data around? More times then you can remember since it’s all a foggy haze.

It can store between 1GB and 16GB of data. Use it as a keychain and you’ll always have your data with you and never be thirsty. It’s not even a bad looking drive. Of course after a few beers everything is better looking, isn’t it? It will cost you about $10 when it’s released next month.
