They have many names such as thumb drives, jump drives, memory stick, USB drives and more, but they all serve the same puprose, and that is being very useful.

These drives have been around for quite awhile, and while they started off as a niche item, they have  grown more and more into the mainstream for their extreme usefulness.  The concept is simple in that you are carrying aroud a large amount of computer memory in the palm of your hand, and due to it being USB, it means you can stick it in any computer and have instant access to what ever information you have stored on there.

When they first came out a few years ago, their cost was prohibitive, but now you can pick up an 8 GB one like the one pictured here for $29.99 on Amazon. Considering the handiness of this, the ability to take it anywhere, and the hassle it can save you in emailing yourself files, it’s a great price for such a handy device.  I own several in the 1 GB and 2 GB range, and I couldn’t live without them any more.
