Gum-Sized 1GB USB 2.0 Storage

1.34" long, 0.49" wide and just 0.09" thick.

I bought this flashdrive today for $29.99 at my local PC Club store.

I lost my other PQI 1GB model - and that one lasted 4 trips through the washing machine! This time I've got a new strategy - I've anchored the drive to the detachable key thingy shown in the picture.
