Considering just how many computers I seem to work with nowadays I decided that I needed some form of portable storage. When I say portable I mean PORTABLE! The reason I say this is because unless it is easy to carry round I won’t do it. Human nature I guess.
I searched the Interweb and came up with a small device that was reasonably priced, the Super Talent 8Gb. What’s the catch, I thought? Seemingly none. Ok, so it is not quite as fast as some of the drives out there, but it is no slouch either.
You can see from the picture just how tiny this is. The other bonus of this device is it is waterproof and very robust. When I saw the picture I thought it looked a little flimsy. It’s not!
So far I have got it auto syncing with my Macbook Pro and also with my work laptop. My next step is to automount a truecrypt volume on both the Mac and the PC just in case it gets lost, but for now I am just impressed with it!
I will post again once I have had time to live with it for a while, but how can anyone not love such a cute little device? (ok, so I need to get out more!)
UPDATE: Amazon now sell these… here are the links
EDIT: This article seems to have got a lot of interest through google. If anyone buys this please feel free to leave a comment and let me know your experience with it. I still love it!
