Qrsima keychain hard drive
Oh my sister is going to be so mad. I just got her a 4 GB mini hard drive for Christmas, something that weighs about an ounce, but it''s going to look pretty huge next to this Qrsima keychain hard drive. The 4 GB 1' drive is housed in a durable rubberized case that's just 2.5" high, and 2" across. This is not a flash drive, but a very tiny hard drive, so the transfer rate is about twice that of even the fastest flash drives. It works the same way, though, just by plugging into the USB port, no drivers or software or other power source necessary. The USB connector can swivel 90 degrees for fitting the drive into computer backsides made tight with various USB devices or plugs. It's not the first of its kind, it's very similar to the Iomega Micro Mini HD (the drive itself is likely identical), but at $99, is about $30 cheaper.
The Qrsima keychain hard drive will be available in most major electronic retailers in February 2006.
