Aaaagh, there's a thumb in my USB port!
Oh wait, it's a Flash drive
Next time you see a thumb poking out from a PC’s USB port think twice before calling an ambulance, because it’s more likely to be quirky online vendor Brando’s idea of a joke.
Brando's USB Thumb Flash Drive
"I'm gunna ask you ten questions..."
The retailer’s taken the phase “thumb drive” a little too far and crafted a fake thumb that cunningly hides an 8GB Flash drive within.
The drive works over USB 2.0 and is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux. It measures 54 x 24 x 23mm, but no different skin colours are available.
Brando’s USB Real Thumb Flash Drive is available now online for $40 (£20/€30).
I hope it comes in a little gift box with the thumb poking out... would be great to post to my, friends.
If you click the link to the site you'll see that the real hand in the picture has been hilariously made-up to you like it's been involved in severing the USB 'thumb'. Not sure what the tipp-ex is all about though but if I meet someone wearing it on their fingernails I'll keep my hands at a safe distance I think.
Any prints on it
Might be handy as a backup in case identity thieves steal you own.
Paris is used to thumbs in odd places.
"Get some hand cream dude", "Don't worry we wont call you a sissy..."
Maybe you could recommend your manicurist to him? Good thing his watch and shoes weren't in the picture too.
Thumb drive makes me think of the old reese's peanut butter cup commercials. "Dude, you got your usb in my thumb", "no, you got your thumb in my usb".
re: I remember ...
And I remember when a dude got pulled over because one of those fake arms was hanging out of his trunk (this was in the US). Held at gun point in his car for about an hour with dozens of cops all around him until someone finally popped the lid (they could have, for instance, asked him to open it, or give them the keys, but noooooo). The Authorities were not amused. I think he got ticketed for some piddly assed $50 fine sort of thing and Austin sued him, but after that it lost its "newsworthiness".
And a thank you to DtheB for the link. Pretty neat stuff, there.
