Split Stick – 2 Flash Drives In One

USB Split Stick

Some ‘crazy’ people over at have designed a flash drive they named the Split Stick. This is a 2GB, double-ended flash drive that allows you to switch between 2 different memory units by sliding a button along, separating your work from leisure or whatever else it may be that you choose to keep separate.

The units are available in a variety of colors and can be etched with a symbol on each side of the stick to help remember which section is which – you don’t want to be opening up your holiday snaps at work! The price is also very attractive for such a unique product at $24.99 but it is still in the development stage.

This product just leaves me with one question – wouldn’t it have been a lot easier and cost effective to simply partition a 4GB drive?

USB Robot Flash Drive


Novelty USB flash drives are always popular – you think of it, it has probably been made! This little find is a rather cute retro robot that also serves as a 1GB flash drive – simply pop his head off to reveal a USB plug, plug him into the computer and away you go. To make this product even cuter, his eyes light up when files are being transferred! He comes in blue, green and black and special editions might be released in the future.

Article Recap for the Week Ending Apr 24, 2009

Here are some of our notable articles for the past week. First we pondered whether Twitter’s popularity would last. Google News now has a Timeline of Events – nice feature.

We noticed that YouTube were looking to accept full length and legal content, while Fuijitsu have developed some secure new memory sticks. Adobe announced their plans to integrate Flash technology with TVs.

Oracle is picking up where IBM left off, buying out Sun for around $7 billion. That’s a lot of Rubik’s Cube Clocks!

Fujitsu Develop Data-Erase USB Memory Sticks

Fujitsu Data-Erase Memory Device

Fujitsu have just announced their latest memory security device; one that erases the data after a certain time period and also has the ability to block users from copying the files from the memory stick to a PC. Perfect if you’ve had your memory stick with confidential files on lost or stolen (something that that would probably be welcomed in the UK).
