German Encyclopedia Kicks Ass, Is Small

I admit, I haven't used an encyclopedia for quite a while, but I remember those school days when I really did need it. Apart from taking up a ludicrous amount of space, they were always out of order—I was a weak kid!—and difficult to carry around. So what do the Germans do? In their fantastically, orderly way, they have assembled the entire Brockhaus Encyclopedia onto a 1GB flash drive. Boo ya! And they even made it a nice mahagony-red so you'll feel scholarly. It contains the entire encyclopedia referenced from A-Z as well as auxiliary and source texts. Articles are cross-referenced via hyperlinks, and can be searched using Natural-Language Search. Thank you Brockhaus, now do you do Encyclopedia Britannica by any chance??
