Tiny USB Thumb Drive Stylish Enough To Penetrate Your MacBook’s Ports

It is with bad memories of Apple’s original iPad case in my mind that I write about Elecom’s Ultra-Compact USB Memory. Forcing that hideous black rubber monstrosity on the beautiful iPad was like marrying a supermodel and forcing her to wear a wetsuit.

But thanks to Elecom, we never need to do this to our svelte MacBooks Air – this tiny USB dongle might be easy ot lose, but until you do, it’ll hand around looking beautiful. Just like that hot model (soon-to-be-ex-) wife of yours.

There’s not much more to it than that. The drive, with its minimal profile and sleek cylindrical silver handle, comes in 16GB and 32GB guises, at an eye-popping and wallet-shriveling $60 and $93 respectively. You can also choose to encrypt the contents with 256-bit AES security, and you can register up to three computers with the drive, and it will refuse to give up its secrets to any others.

The drive is on back order right now, presumably because people are ordering multiples to be sure to have backups when the originals inevitably take a tumble through the washing machine.

    USB 2.0?

    If it were USB 3.0 instead, I would be very tempted.

    I totally agree that USB 3.0 is a must for this sort of device. Also, was the title of this article really necessary?
