Verbatim TUFF N TINY Drive

Verbatim today hoped to claim a crown for USB flash drive storage today by adding the TUFF 'N' TINY to its collection. The sticks use extra-dense memory and as a consequence are about as thin as a penny while not having much more surface area at 1 inch by 0.5 inches. At the same time, the company claims they're designed to be durable with a completely sealed design that resists dust and water; each comes bundled with a key ring lanyard to encourage taking them outside.

The drives come in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities in respective orange, green and purple colors. All of them support Linux and Mac OS X systems, but Windows users also get security software onboard to protect data. Verbatim hasn't priced the 2GB drive but says a 4GB version costs $30 while an 8GB version is $50. Both of these should be shipping today.

    New flash with old penny

    If you're going to show off the latest mini flash drive, why wouldn't you use the latest pennies with the new Lincoln themed backs. Or maybe it's because they couldn't find any since the banks don't want to "buy" them from the Federal Reserve. Sorry, it's a slow day.
