Looks nice, but I need more capacity (I use a 32 GB stick for the moment).

Of course I ordered one (they have lower shipping than with my last order), but I wanted to state that we live in the 21st century, and 1 GB is not enough.

Sorry, but I'm not biting :P I need more than 1GB!

I paid less than that for my 8GB Kingston...

and my 250GB FreeAgent (Bought for $8 New-in-Box, at a Yard Sale :D)
Image
What was amazing to me was that it did not require any external power supply like other external hard drives, and with it's size of (approximately) 3" x 5" x 1/2", it's also quite portable!

Maybe I'll make a mod with my 8GB and see if anyone here will bite :D

I think it's more for the collectability. I'm going to get one just to have it. Yea, 1g is not useful for much these days.

At the HKTGF they gave away 1GB sticks for showing up in the stationary part of the fair. Mine are full already and there is almost nothing on them. This one is cute, but highly priced. I'll wait until I see it locally.

This is sweet. But I guess you can only turn one of the cubies (to make the "plug" come out) ?
There should be a 3x3x3 usb stick and depending on how many cubies are solved, more capacity is added because other chips are added by contact or something. Or even better: More folders are unlocked by a programm. That way only someone who can solve the cube will have acces to certain files :lol: .
Well this one is awesome too.

I'd probably use the pepper grinder more often, I put pepper on everything. :D

You DO spend a lot of money on puzzles, why not buy 32 rubiks usbs D:


I think I've seen someone on this forum build a USB into a 2x2x2 eastsheen before. Was it Scott?

What would I do with 32 x 1 GB?
My 31,000+ emails alone are more than 2 GB.

Really? You must have some extensive attachments on there. Most emails are no more than 10k or so, which makes 31.000 of them on the order of 300 megs.

Really!
Yes, there are attachments up to 8MB.
No, I don't want to extract them, I want to leave them with the corresponding email.
Indeed I have enough storage place on my stick.
What I have now is from the last 15 years, so...

Oh, I can certainly understand that, my email archive is pretty extensive as well. It's just that my correspondence rarely includes attachments, let alone large ones, except in the nature of "here's the file I promised you" or me shuttling smallish files amongst my own email addresses, which are not particularly archive-worthy.

I am sure you can come up with some sort of crazy mod with them. :lol:

There's another problem with that USB key beyond capacity. Its shape does not make it a very efficient user of available USB port space. If you have USB ports stacked on on top of the other then this key will eat up that space. Plus it doesn't look like the USB connector is very "deep" making it not so good at plugging into harder-to-reach USB ports.

But at least the effort is there and it does look pretty cool. Might have to get one or two myself when I next order.

Since you turn the top cubie to make the USB connector extend, it's possible that it's not fully extended on that photo (I suspect full extension has the top cubie square, but but not colour-aligned, and unextended is square and solved -- although the other way round would be better "Solve this cube to use it!").

A good modder ought to be able to mod this thing to contain significantly larger drives :P

I've just seen a similar item on Deal Extreme, only it's a usb hub rather than a memory stick http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.13343

In my list of DX puzzles (viewtopic.php?p=139010#p139010) I included that one under "Not Puzzles". :)
