Go Go Gadget, Flashdrive.

I’m starting to feel a bit like Inspector Gadget. My wife recently picked up a flash wristband for me. It’s gotta be one of the best flash drive ideas ever. I was constantly either forgetting or fidgeting with my swivel flash drive (which is also a great drive) when it was on its lanyard. I’m not sure which was worse: forgetting it defeated the purpose of having one, and fidgeting placed undue wear on it. This wrist one solves both problems. At 256MB, it’s not huge. But it is extremely convenient, and big enough for a few portable apps along with some important data that I’d rather not be without, should I need it. It also solves the problem of where to keep my PGP keyrings because I use so many different computers throughout any given day. The only problem I can find with the drive is that I now try to answer my shoe whenever I hear a phone ring 😉
