In weird USB news: cat's tails and men's fingers (no kidding)

USB drive designers really have to push the boat out these days if they want to attract attention but this cat's tail design is certainly eye-catching. Whether it's eye-catching in a good way is a matter of personal taste, but we've been assured that no animals were harmed in the making of this device, which is available from Geek Stuff 4U.

Even more inventive than that, though, is Jerry Jalava, a man who had his finger amputated
in an accident, and has turned the space where the digit used to be into a handy (ha ha) USB storage slot. No, really - picture over the cut:

See?

Now that's turning lemons into lemonade.
