Eraser USB Stick

outofstock-usb-eraser.jpg

Ubiquitous is defined by my dictionary as "being or seeming to be everywhere at the same time." The word could as well have meant "USB sticks." Realizing the challenge of earning top dollar in what has become another commonplace item, firms have started either bundling USB storage devices with other daily-use accessories or creatively making them look like other accessories. Treading the latter path, in a tribute to the classic eraser, OutofStock (yes, that's the name of the firm) has come up with the Eraser USB Stick. According to the designer, Gabriel Tan, the design is a kind of irony wherein the USB stores data while the eraser removes it. That to me is not entirely technically correct since you can also erase data on the USB drive. Leaving that aside, it scores well in the looks department and if that matters to you, this could be a good buy. I don't know if the eraser actually works, but for most buyers that should be quite a low area of concern. The 1GB model iof the Eraser USB Stick s available for sale at the OutofStock website for €55.
