USB Security Lock

This image was lost some time after publication.

I might just be too much of a pessimist (like most writers here at Gizmodo), but how in the hell is this thing supposed to function? It works in the same manner as any other traditional locks, but it plugs into a USB port rather than something secure. Plug it in and turn the device 90 degrees for complete security, supposedly. I have had my fair share of busted USB ports over the years, and those are just from pulling standard USB devices out, so who knows what would happen with this? Keep your eyes out for somebody actually using this, it may be a way to get a free laptop. This is available for $22 through The Gadget Store.
