Fun Flash Drives

As the cliche goes, "You can't take it with you". However, you can carry it around in your pocket by storing it on one or more USB flash drives. These amazing digital marvels store billions of bytes in a package the size of a AA battery. Cost continues to drop while capacity climbs. A boring generic 2GB (gigabyte) flash drive can be had for well under $10. However, a fun flash drive costs a little more. We present fun and cool ways to store your data.

2GB Fortune Cookie USB Drive - Fun!!

A traditional fortune cookie stores only a free words. Making matters worse, some of the fortunes are extremely offensive. For thousands of years, humankind cracked open the cookie, read the fortune, ate the cookie, and discarded the scrap of paper. Uncountable forests of trees gave their lives for the amusement of diners. Piles of used fortunes accumulated in landfills, taking up valuable space that could be used to store used diapers or campaign promises.

These adorable USB flash drives store millions of fortunes, saving acres of fortune cookie paper trees. Go green with a green tea fortune cookie flash drive and save the environment as you discover your eternal path.

Animal Series 4 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Sea Turtle)

USB flash drives are lightning quick. Your data rockets in and out of the device faster than Congress runs up a deficit. This cute little sea turtle won't reduce your bandwidth or your throughput, but it will bring to mind leisurely beach combing trips gathering sea shells and long vacations lounging in the sun, gathering UV rays. Sea turtles may live for as long as 80 years: make sure your data enjoys a similar lifespan.

Mimobot Hello Kitty "Fun in Fields" USB Flash Drive

Hello Kitty motifs appear on everything from pajamas to billion dollar corporate office towers in down Tokyo. Store your data in the cutest Hello Kitty digital device since the Hello Kitty pacemaker. No one will suspect the melancholy nature of your music collection when you transport it in a Hello Kitty shaped USB flash drive. Jump into the Hello Kitty Kraze with both feet. Resistance is futile: submit to the beckoning cat.

Russian Doll Usb Flash Drive

Russian nesting dolls represent thousands of years of culture and artistic skill. Artisans painstakingly crafted interlocking sets of wooden dolls for the amusement of the bourgeois. These days, they're flea market novelties made in Taiwan, but this particular Russian doll includes a secret digital port that hides an authentic USB flash drive. Many a Russian spy may have used this device to conceal covert activities as he smuggled secret plans across the border into Hungary, or he may have just emailed the plans to his HotMail account. Either way this cute little high tech device will provide many hours of binary fun for spies and children alike.

Pink Heart Fun Bear 2gb USB Flash Drive

We don't know what this is, but it looks like fun. The decoration resembles Hello Kitty in a pinkish sort of way. The exaggerated eyebrows imply that the thing is either asleep or winking at you with both eyes at the same time. Is it wearing pajamas or is it tattooed? The thing is almost too much fun even before learning that there's a USB flash drive embedded in its' belly. Everyone should store their data in a pink heart fun bear. Attach it to your keychain along with your 42 loyalty bar codes from every store at the mall. The loyalty cards are no fun at all, but the pink heart fun bear adds fun to any sad little keychain. Store your resume and your blog entries on a pink heart fun bear: you probably won't regret it.

Conclusion

By next Christmas, expect flash drives as free tchotchkes in cereal boxes.

      I "Zipped" into town in a "Flash," and purchased mega gigabytes of something for something I did not know I needed... To be informed later I needed a new "Operating System." I do not do operations, I am a truck driver... Therefore I do not need a 7 system to operate. I do not know how to Operate, and I am older than 7...

      I was thinking of getting another flash drive, but I didn't know they came in something other than boring gray. I'm kinda partial to the Hello Kitty one myself. What I like about these novelty flash drives is they're brightly colored so I'm not going to lose them in the bottom of my bag. Thanks!
