    I’m pretty sure that if you bring one of these to an airport, you get a free rectal exam.

    But it’s upside/down.

    If you note the seam on the USB plug is on the “top” of the airplane, which means it would be flying into your twin tower PCs (or mac pros) upside down.

    Something suspicious about this.

    From what I’ve seen — and I’ve not done an extensive search — $24 isn’t actually too bad for an 8 GB drive. Not great, but not terrible. 8GB is larger than most of the novelty-shape drives I’ve seen in the past, too.

    The USB ports on my two tower PCs, and I think most peoples PCs too, are on the front about four fifths of the way up the front of the cases.

    A couple of these and it is effectively a scale model of September the 11th.

    Either someone didn’t think this through….or did and just has a pretty dark sense of humour.

    Yeah, I’d contemplated writing “For plugging into tower PCs,” but thought better of it.

    Funny and not at the same time.

    I just built twin (PC) towers.
