    If you happen to have an old Mac keyboard or two sitting around the house, why not get crafty and USB-ify it? Stuffing USB flash drive internals into mundane objects is the latest rage. But you know what, I love it. Many years from now, geeks will compare their flash drive collection as a sort of "right of passage". No joke, I want this. If DIY isn't your cup of tea, thesleekgeek (Etsy) will happily do the grunt work for you, $60 donation provided of course. So what do you say: DIY or p...
  • Quite possibly the greatest flash drive ever: The Teddy Drive

    I'm honestly at a loss for words here. Food will probably taste better, odors smell more distinct, and colors more vibrant now that I have seen this Teddy Drive. Of course, the poor bear won't ever taste, smell, or see anything again. But that's besides the point. I really don't see how this can be topped. I have a sort of sick, twisted humor that finds headless bears crammed into computers funny. Forgive me if that offends you. Though I really don't care. That's just good stuff righ...
  • The ultimate triple dog dare: Man swallows flash drive to “obstruct” information from Secret Service.

    If you ever found yourself on the wrong side of the law, just how far would you go in evading the 5-0? Would you run on foot, by scooter, car, or plane? Would you pull knife, gun, rocket launcher, plasma shifting uber weapon? All of these and more are thoughts that go through a persons head in the few seconds in which they transform from innocent, frightened civilian to hardened criminal. I'm sure that running on a scooter and shooting plasma beams at the police is a much more favorable "goi...
  • “Be careful with those…” Star Wars lightsaber flash drives.

    "Lightsaber flash drives" you say with abated breath and a racing heart. Yes, your very own futuristic death sword retired and sent back into the working world as a lowly flash drive. The storage size is a bit puny as far as modern flash drives go -- only 1GB -- but that shouldn't stop the most obsessed Star Wars fans. The icing on the cake comes in the form of exterior illumination when plugged in. For only $20 at ThinkGeek, why not? [gallery link="file" columns="3"] NerdApproved...
  • Flash drives return to the Department of Justice.

    After a brief 15-month hiatus, it looks like personal flash drives will once again be allowed inside the Department of Justice. Spurred by a rash of virus outbreaks and compromised computers, the DoD enacted the ban back in late 2008 to get a grip on the damaging and stubborn malware war path. Don't go all hogwild just yet though, bringing in a bin of flash drives and relying on them for home and work use. The new decree strictly mentions "mission critical" jobs as the only time in which f...
  • The Woody of 2010 — a simple DIY flash drive.
    by Mike
    Posted February 9th, 2010 at 12:14 am
    Mentioning the word "Woody" to your elders -- especially the "older" elders -- will garner colorful stories and vivid accounts of years past when cars had actual wood on the outside of the body. Crazy stuff. Nowadays, the only thing slapped on the outside of most cars is some form of metal or carbon fiber. Different times, different toys. Seeing as how a ton of wood is now being freed up since it isn't going to automobile designs, why not take the chance to do something crafty and put that n...

    Turning anything and everything into a USB flash drive is still all the rage. While I haven't personally seen as many novelty flash drives flood my inbox, I do still see quite a lot out there by searching on my own. With that said, I'm a geek. You're a geek. Many of us are geeks. What better way to show that than toting around your own custom flash drives? What would you do if you saw some special chap sit down next to your at the coffee shop and whip out his GBA Super Mario Bros. cart...
  • Capacity aware flash drive concept is functional and good looking.

    Form over function function over form. Which is more important? I guess it depends on the task at hand and the perspective of the person looking at said task. All too often in the gadget world, there are two extremes: extremely functional butt ugly products and gorgeous looking boxes of plastic and metal that do almost nothing. The flash drive concept above (designed by Sokolova Ekateryna) strives to ace both. It's main goal is of course to act as a storage medium. It's second job is to...
