Bamboo USB stick with built-in post-its

This bamboo USB stick with built-in sticky note pad is rather lovely, for the product of two unnecessarily converged accessories, but for $30 for 2GBs and 100 notes, you’d be better off slapping a cut-in-half pad of Post-Its on any of the numerous other flash drives in your collection.

    I picture lots of broken USB ports in the buyers future.

    Well, it is bamboo. Some research group must have gotten consumer feedback somewhere that says people are willing to pay a premium for something that’s incredibly easy to grow.

    A gentleman’s got a mem’ry stick.
    A seaman’s got a gaff.
    And the merry men of Robin Hood
    They used a quarterstaff.
    On the Spanish plains inside their canes
    They hide their ruddy swords.
    But we make do with an old bam-boo
    And everyone applauds!
    1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – Hey!
    Me ol’ bam-boo, me ol’ bam-boo
    You’d better never bother with me ol’ bam-boo.
    It’s where it’s at and it’s USB 2
    But you’d better never uninstall me ol’ bam-boo!

    The real genius here is in taking ubiquitous and mundane objects of little worth and flipping them for a fair markup.

    Objects like this make me want to start hawking such things on etsy or somesuch, cobbled together out of my useless detritus.

    Seems only appropriate to quote George Carlin: “If you glue two things together that have never been glued together before, some schmuck will buy it!”

    dculberson: don’t worry, the USB plug breaks first. Serves the Darwin-Award-Winning User right to lose $30

    to go with the white-out bottle holder that clips to your monitor? Is there a computer chin-dogu site out there?
