USB Drives: Secure and Injected Data

USB Drives: Secure and Injected Data

There is something to be said about all of the different types of USB flash drives out there. Now I don't really mean to mention the tacky ones, but the useful and interesting ones. Most of us have a USB flash drive. Even though I learned at my expense that these little gizmos are easily infected with viruses, they are still extremely useful for lugging around large amounts of data in a compact form factors.

No Authorization
Now this is a really nifty little drive. It allows you to physically block the access to the drive unless you have a key to unlock it. That may seem extreme, but you never know who accesses your data on your drive when you leave it laying around. It also looks slightly larger, maybe allowing more data to be stored. This is really an old school solution to a problem that many people have, from students to parents.

Data Injection
It's true that most of us are slowly become information junkies. Just try it out. Try spending a few days without googling any questions that you might have. Try mind googling them instead. It's slower, but you'll end up smarter. Some psychologists believe that we are creating a generation of scatterbrains, but hey, it's always great to have access to information. That's why we think that the Data Injection USB drive is pretty cool. It's like a social commentary on our use of information. [via Design You Trust]
