Golden piggy microSD card reader


Memory card readers come in all shapes and sizes these days, but I think this USB Golden Piggy one is by far the most disturbing of the lot.

What bothers me is not the device's exclusivity to microSD cards, as they're becoming increasingly popular for use with cell phones and digital audio players, or the fact that I prefer silver (well, okay, platinum) over gold. No, what makes me uneasy and carries with it the potential of keeping me up at night is - do I really have to tell you? - that this 55 x 20 x 18 mm pig needs to be beheaded every time I want to plug it into my Mac or PC's USB 2.0 port.

I don't want to be a tattletale or anything, but surely it's just plain irresponsible not to tell PETA about this.
