The next stupid thing...
Memorex has invented it
. It's called the "FlashDisc" and looks like a disc, but it's actually a *HUGE* USB flash memory stick with 16 MB memory. Yes, with the *HUGE* size I didn't mean the drive's space, rather its outer shell. They want to replace the 3.5" floppy disk with those. I guess nobody has told them that the floppy disk has already
been replaced by the same thing they're inventing now, but in a much smaller package with a lot more space on the inside
, where it's important. The form of the "FlashDisc" also hinders other USB-sticks from using USB ports next to the one used for it. Granted: The price of 19.99 USD for three 16 MB disks sounds like not too much, but you'll find one 128 MB USB stick for about the same price, and not only has it got 80 MB more memory, it can also hold files that are, erh, 17 MB in size, for example. ;)
