From the Department of WTF: New USB tampon flash drive

Thieves will probably give it a miss

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

There's not much to say about this one. It's a flash drive... and it looks like a tampon.

Presumably the idea is that it will be ignored if a thief rifles through your backpack, handbag or briefcase.

The company flogging it has a taste for the bad pun... so prepare for the worst if you point your browser to the Meninos website.

The jokesters selling the gadget are pushing three versions:

  • 2GB ... for (wait for it) light flow,
  • 4GB for moderate flow and
  • 8GB for heavy flow.

Prices start from $29.90. Whatever next? A flash drive that looks like a condom (with enhanced data "protection")? Enough already. ®
