I've been meaning to buy a Super Talent Pico flash drive for a while-they're 8GB, 31mm long (claiming world's smallest) and have a metal loop that looks like it won't break (hopefully) on my keyring. Now Brando is jumping into the ultra-tiny flash game, and surprisingly, the 8GB EKmemory Micro will run you $55-$20 more than what the Pico is going for. And the Micro is packing an extra four millimeters to boot. For shame Brando, for shame. [Brando via Pocket Lint]
I've seen much smaller, though not necessarily capable of as much storage capacity. Can't remember the brand (think it might have been SanDisk), but I once saw a USB wafer drive. All it was was a single piece of plastic with USB leads on one end. No outer casing, no shroud around the USB end...it's pretty much what you'd get if you stripped away all the non-essential bits from a standard USB drive and left only the flash chip behind. And, if I'm not mistaken, the entire thing could fit on that quarter without hanging over the edges.
The obvious? Would that be homework, porn, or illegal music downloads?
Without leaving anything behind...except randomly downloaded spyware, that is.
