A 32 GB USB Drive as Big as a Dime

Back when I started using computers, I was using those horrible 5 1?4-inch black floppies to store up to 360Kb of data per disk. By comparasion with today’s standards, that seems awfully low, but back then, most software and games would fit on a single floppy. Fast forward 30 years, Sandisk, among with plenty of other flash drive manufacturers, releases a drive that can stock 32 GB of data on something that’s about as big as a dime. Don’t you just love technology? :)

  1. You kids and your floppies! Why in my day we backed up to cassette tape and we prayed that our little brothers didn't record mix tapes over the top of our 8 bit games… and we were glad to have it!

    • Luxurry! Back in my day we didn't even have cassette tape! If we wanted to play a game we had to manually type in the source code and run it. And when we restarted the computer we had to do it all over again!
      I mean; You were lucky. We lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.

  2. Micro SD cards are even smaller… micro SD cards are thin, and don’t cover the entire surface of the dime.

  3. it's probably a micro SD to USB adaptor disguised as just a usb thumb/flash drive. i had discovered that's what happened when i bought a 4gig one that size

  4. and i thought that my Q-Be mp3 player was small about 7 years ago 1GB with control interface all build into 2square cm.

  5. I agree with you Towers. I own one. These guys are just begging to go missing. And like always, they have less than the stated amount. Still a nice product though
