MEGATech Showcase: It’s Flash Drive Time Again! Beth Snyder August 23, 2011 Features I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath for the latest entry in my neverending effort to bring flash drive goodness to the masses. Because who doesn’t love a bizarrely-shaped flash drive? I know there are some of you who are thinking it’s probably not a good idea to have something shaped like a gun pointed at your computer. I also know there are some of you who wish you had a gun to point at your computer. This one features a crystal-decorated handle and chrome plating and measures approximately 7.2 x 5.2 x 1.7 cm. It comes in 2GB, 4GB or 8GB capacity, starting at $19.00 US. Source: GeekAlerts Are you old enough to remember the Roland TR-808? If you are, you can relive your youth with this flash drive from Alkota Beats. It comes in 8GB only, and is available for pre-order now (expected shipping date is mid-September to early October). It’s a little spendy at $39.99 US, but then if I remember correctly, the original TR-808 was fairly overpriced as well. Source: Technabob Who says you can’t afford a Ferrari Enzo? Oh… you wanted to drive one. Well, this is a 1:64 die cast model of one that contains a flash drive, so I guess you’ll have to content yourself with “driving” it around your desk. Nestled very carefully inside the model is a Kingston 8GB flash drive. You can make one yours for just $35.00 US. Source: 7 Gadgets One of my favourite ways to pass the time, especially when I can’t sleep, is playing Mahjong online. It doesn’t require a lot of brain power, but it can eat up an hour before you even notice. Now you can get Mahjong tiles that are flash drives! These come in 2GB ($16 US), 4GB ($18 US) and 8GB ($25 US) versions and measure just 25 x 29 x 14 mm. Source: Ladies’ Gadgets It never fails to amaze me how technology advances. It was maybe two years ago I was excited to be able to find an 8GB flash drive, and now SuperTalent has come up with one that goes up to 100GB. It’s only marginally larger than a standard flash drive, and is their fastest drive to date. You can get one in 25GB, 50GB and 100GB capacities starting at $115.00 US.

I do mean gold-plated… these are not fakes. They can also be engraved, just in case you need to prove they’re yours. Each pair will run you $174.95 US. Source: 7 Gadgets If gold isn’t your style, maybe you’ll find something in these other cufflinks featured on Ladies’ Gadgets. Pricing on these starts at $195.00 US per pair, and each one is 4GB (for a total of 8GB per pair). Some are a little more flashy (no pun intended) than others, so just like any other fashion statement, it’s really a matter of personal preference. If there wasn’t anything in this batch that caught your eye, never fear! I am confident there will be more. Share This With The World!
