    Considering my largest flash drive is 2GB, I'm probably overdue for an upgrade. This thing looks cool, but I too would be worried about losing it.

    Glad it has a lifetime warranty because lots of these super tiny USB flash devices have or develop errors very quickly.

    Too bad the warranty does not cover being lost or stolen. XD

    Wonder what the sustained write speed is. Would be nice to replace my 16 gig with a 32 and see something in the 60+ meg a sec range.

    Easy solution. Cut off the tip of your thumb, and attach the drive to the remainder via monofilament wire. Safe, secure, and you'll never have to worry about Udo Kier getting too close.

    USB 3 means a useless gimmick if the drive can't use the extra bandwidth in the first place (duh).

    Read\Write specs please, otherwise a waste of a news article.
  10. Not at all... It's a news article, not a review. You've been given the news about it, now go forth and find the specs. yourself.

    Barely. By your standards, EVERYTHING is news.
