Obama: the face of USB Flash storage
Fail to the Chief?
Technology usually ignores politics, but every true American patriot will want Active Media’s latest gadget: a President Obama USB Flash drive.
Active Media's Obama Flash drive
Despite lacking any White House authenticity, the Obama drive does come pre-loaded with 80MB of free presidential-grade material, including pictures of Obama and over two hours of his “landmark speeches” in MP3 format.
The Obama drive’s also waterproof, according to the manufacturer, so your files should be as safe in water as the man himself is when travelling on The Beast.
...with holographic Obama
The drive's chrome-plated pivoting lid is adorned with a holographic image of the 44th US president, and you’ll also receive a smiling rubber Obama chain to tie onto the drive’s end.
A rubber Obama lanyard completes the look
Active Media’s 8GB Obama USB drive costs $30 (£18/€21), while rednecks can pick up the 2GB model for just $10 (£6/€8). A UK presidential Flash drive tour hasn’t been announced. ®
to dr_forrester, "Kinda worrying" --
If it were a GWB USB drive, it would be constantly crashing, or perhaps install surveillance software on your machine. :-P A Dick Cheney thumb drive would worry me even more.
But seriously, it's been a while since the US has had any sort of president that has evoked such hero worship as Mr Obama. Not sure if that's a good thing or bad.
Regardless, the drive looks quite spiffy and appears to be fairly rugged from the photos I've seen.
what, me worry?
@dr_forrester: Are you old enough to have seen "PT-109" on its first release? I am, and as I recall the republic survived, after its own fashion.
When the economies of Chinese manufacture meet the American lust to spend money, one does not need to drag in hero worship to explain a product's arrival.
But still not as awesome as the Obama Dildo
This actually gives me a bit of an uneasy feeling. I could understand giving them away during the campaign, but eight months after the election and five after taking office, it starts to give me a "Great Leader" vibe which concerns me.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am an American. I did not, for a variety of political reasons, vote for President Obama. A George W. Bush USB flash drive released this time in 2001 would have worried me just as much.
Not Ron Reagan
Even without squinting it's Frank Sinatra!
