Mother of God seen on USB Flash drive

Pray you don't lose your data

If you lose a file from this USB drive then you’d better pick your expletives carefully or you’ll have the Good Lord, vengeful wrath and all, snapping at your heels.

Thou shalt not carve graven USBs

The Maria Memory Stick is USB 2.0 compatible and can be used to store all your essential files. However, unlike any other Flash drive, this one also boasts a golden halo above the Virgin’s head which is engraved with the statement, "Oh Maria, keep my data safe."

The halo also serves as a way of yanking her from the USB port, apparently.

Plug her in and "she comes to life, her red LED heard starts to beat – in passive state slowly, quicker whilst connecting or saving data", according to her retailer on Earth.

Being the mother of Jesus, you’d probably expect unlimited amounts of storage. But, it’s only available in a 512MB capacity.

Nonetheless, this choice item coming to a stable near you this Christmas and can be bought for gold, frankincense or myrrh... sorry... €69s (£49/$99).
