Take your Googol bite

According to Wikipedia, a USB flash drive is a data storage device that includes flash memory with an integrated Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface. USB flash drives are typically removable and rewritable, and physically much smaller than a floppy disk.

Yes, I am of the generation that remembers the floppy disk…

USB changed our behaviour with data exchange forever. I remember when I got my first USB stick as a Christmas present in the very beginning of the ‘00s. It had a memory of 64MB. What is 64MB today? Actually, what is MB today? Today we speak GB and TB. Tomorrow we will speak of completely different language like PB (petabyte) or EB (exabyte). There is a limit though. We don’t have any more names. The highest number we know today for the future storage is Yottabyte – 1YB = 1 trillion TB.  Ok, maybe boring but do you know that the largest number known in science is the Googol – a number 1 followed by 100 zeros. This number can be only digested by the biggest NASA computers.

Anyway, I love the new USB drives designed by Art. Lebedev Studio

Bulavkus—a USB flash drive disguised as a classic safety pin—keeps your data safely pinned. For finding Bulavkus in a flash, simply fasten it to any fabric material and spare yourself frustration of digging through pockets.
