USB flash drives can be really handy to have around. You can store important info on them to have at a virtual arm's reach (the list of important lists to keep is a good start) or you can use it as a digital subway train to move files easily, quickly and safely. But just like with our (almost) gorgeous and efficient apartments, who says that necessities have to be ugly or boring? Instead of a plain plastic USB drive (the apartment equivalent of an unfurnished studio with a mattress on the floor), why not upgrade to something more stylish and useful...

This USB drive comes to us by way of Japan (via the "live from Japan" Akihabara News) and features exposed wood grain (great for a flash drive or an apartment)—and a Post-It note dispenser.

Instead of just having that colored plastic tzachki sticking out from the side of your laptop, why don't you put it to work by making it hold the always-needed-at-a-moment's-notice sticky note for you?

You don't need to run out and grab this one, because this would be an easy enough DIY (That, and we really have no idea how to read the product page). Just attach a stack of small sticky notes with a little bit of glue to your own flat, wide flash drive and voila!
