A few interesting facts about USB drives

In the interest of keeping this USB flash drives for the animal lover Squidoo article less spammy, I researched some interesting facts about USB flash drives. Here's what I found out.

  1. The very first flash drive produced in 2000 by IBM and Trek technologies held a (then) huge 8MB of data - yes, that's megabytes, not gigabytes (GB) like today's USB drives. 8MB of data was roughly 4000 pages of data or 1 minute of a video. We've come a long way baby....
  2. When USB chips are made, the manufacturing facility is estimated to be 100 times more sterile than an operating room. Even one spec of dust will render a newly made USB chip unusable.
  3. USB chips might seem pretty easy to make but they're not. It takes a month to produce each USB chips as they have to go through many stages such as wafer cutting, circuit board mounting, etc.
  4. USB flash drives and those little flash drives you use in a camera (SSDs) bring in around 38 billion dollars to the manufacturers each year. Within the next 4 years, projections are for these devices to increase revenues to 80 billion dollars!

      @kathysart: Kathy - they're to use to transfer files from a computer or, if the usb memory drive is large enough, to store pictures or even backup your computer system. They're pretty cool!
