Corsair deploys Bond-friendly Flash drive

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

On the off-chance you want to take a USB Flash drive up Everest or down the Amazon, memory specialist Corsair has launched Survivor, an "ultra-rugged" storage tool that's drop-proof and water resistant to a depth of 200m.

Corsair Survivor armoured USB Flash drive

Which is more than you can say for most of the kit it'll be connected to. The Survivor is encased in anodised, aircraft-grade aluminium with rubber collars four bounceability. It looks a little like a Maglite. The USB connector's inside a screw-on cover that extends almost the full length of the product.

Corsair is offering the drive in 4GB and 8GB versions, priced at $130 and $60, respectively. It claimed the drive has a read/write performance up to 34MBps and 28MBps, respectively. The Survivor has 256-bit AES encryption software on board, just in case you need to use it on an espionage mission.

Would-be Bonds can buy the drives from Corsair's website.
