Club Overclocker have posted a review of one of those small USB HDD stroage devices. This one fits in your pocket and is capable of storing 128mb of data. I've always wanted one of these, maybe it's time I brought one.
The street price on memory has been slowly working its way down lately, having a very desirable affect on the rest of the computer hardware market. Just about everything that a true wire-head could want is somehow attached to the memory market. CompactFlash™ cards and video cards are directly influenced by the going price of the Megabyte. Since their inception, the portable USB flash-ram devices have gained a good deal of attention but earned little market penetration. Now that the price of the components which go into them are lower in price, the retail dollar sign won't be as high. More to the point, what you may have paid last year for a 32Meg unit will today get you a 128Meg unit. Even the 1Gig units have become much more affordable than they once were.More information at Club Overclocker
