What sets their Pico line of thumb drives apart from the rest is their rugged durability while maintaining such a small form factor. A few months ago I reviewed the Sony 8gb Micro Vault Tiny USB Flash Drive and while it is [...]

USB flash drives are not something we would typically consider as collector's items. That is until now... If you are a collector, a geek and someone that needs to carry around a flash drive, then you will want to take a look at the MIMBOTS from Mimoco. They recently sent me the 2GB Pink Meletta [...]

I have been using a 4gb Micro Vault Tiny USB Flash Drive by Sony for about a year now. And while I have other higher capacity thumb drives, I typically reach for my Micro Vault Tiny on the way out the door. This extremely small USB flash drive is not only incredibly portable but incredibly losable as well. So, when I found out Sony had released a 8gb version of the Micro Vault Tiny I started looking for a good deal.

I'm such a loser. All my friends and family agree with me: I have a terrible habit of losing USB thumb drives. Not only have I left them in the most unlikely of places, but I have also laundered them, stepped on them, and even left them out in the rain. A few of the drives I've owed over the years have included a neck lanyard, but I've never used them because they look so ugly.

This device is Brando's 21st-century equivalent to the Swiss Army Knife, as it contains a raft of semi-related features in a compact package:

It's a 1GB USB thumb drive!
It's an MP3 player!
It's a voice recorder!
It's (supposedly) an FM radio!
It's a pen!
It's a floor wax!
It's a dessert topping!

(floor wax and dessert topping sold separately)
