My last two posts, although written somethat tongue-in cheek in places, were about serious stuff and have involved some very heavy research and a lot of Googling, linking and verifying. I'm feeling a bit burned out, to be honest.
I was very glad therefore to see this picture of a plush USB flash drive that my friend Bekki posted on Facebook. It cheered me up no end to remember that there is still fun and frivolity available on the Internet, and indeed to my computer, limited no doubt only by my budget and the number of USB ports I have.
So I went looking for some more fun stuff, deciding to use my stellar Google skills for something fun and frivilous for a change.
You can get USB Flash drives in all sorts of shapes and applications these days. I have no idea where to get most of the things shown here, BTW. This is not intended to be an informative post. I am all informatived out right now. But if there is anything you particularly love; you can post a comment or send an e-mail and I'm sure I will be able to find it again to give you the details on it.
The Sushi flash drives were quite cute. I could easily see myself pulling one of these out of my pocket during a Wall Street meeting, back in the day.
These are a good idea for people like me, who loses everything. USB flash drives that can be worn around the neck as jewelry.
Of course, it's not just flash drives anymore. Because you can draw power through a USB port, they are making all sorts of funky gadgets that you can connect to your puter.
Of course, cats don't retrieve, so I would have to buy about fifty of the little rockets, only to find them under bins and furniture for the next ten years.
Maybe not such a good idea, after all...
Here's something I could probably use during those long hours spent researching and documenting Internet scammers: A little USB-powered fondue set. No longer do I need to blog hungry or keep researching through the long nights, powered only by cold snacks (and cold fury)!
...except look at that thing! It doesn't look very safe to me! I wouldn't put it anywhere near my eyes! One false move and I could be blinded!
You can now get a little vibrator with interchangable attachments that powers off your USB port. Perfect for those nights when you are just home, surfing porn.
Now all this is very well and good. But I only have two USB ports on my computer.
Feel the force, baby!
