Super Talent announced a new flash product today, a gold-plated USB drive that they claim is the world’s smallest. The PICO-C Gold is a tiny drive weighing only 4.7 grams, with a profile that is smaller than a traditional SD card. The card isn't lean on space, cramming 8GB into an area that is less than 1.2 inches wide and less than half an inch long. What makes the unit particularly unique is the plating, with the entire unit coated in gold.

What advantage having a gold-plated USB drive would offer I can't particularly say, besides looking fancy. At least the gold plating doesn't drive up the cost too much, with the unit selling for less than $40. You can read more in the full press release in the comments section.
