Microsoft Launches Pricy Xbox 360 Flash Drives

Xbox360-flash-driveSince Microsoft has prevented users from storing their data on external storage devices, it had to come up with a way to provide mode storage space. It has, but can you afford it?

You probably can, but I’m sure you won’t like paying a large amount of cash for a few extra gigabites. Unlike the PS3, which allows players to save data on any external device that connects via USB, the Xbox doesn’t have this native feature, so it requires a workaround. But the brains at Microsoft immediately saw this as a way to squeeze more money from their clients.

The new Xbox 360 flash drives offer 16 Gb of extra space, but at a cost of $70. That’s more than some stores sell their 20 gb drives, these days, and the new Microsoft sticks come with no extra features, other than their compatibility with the Xbox 360, and a free month of Xbox Live Gold, which is worth $8.


Old-School USB Lock Keeps Your Data Safe

All you have to do is push in the USB stick, set the combination, and spin the tumblers. For the untrained eye, the USB flash drive seems safe, especially since trying to pull the stick out of the lock will damage it. But, in reality, this tumbler USB lock doesn’t anybody from accessing the data directly from the chip, inside the flash drive, provide it you know how to do it.

But, the old fashioned lock does look unbreakable to most people, just don’t try to use it to secure documents regarding national security or such things.

Soviet USB Stick

Featuring a giant wooden case, an on/off switch, a cooling fan, and, of course, a USB drive, the Soviet USB drive is able to store up to 4 Gb of data , and no, it’s not USB 3. But it does rival a vacuum cleaner, as far as noise is concerned.

DIY Flash Drive Made from a Sperm Whale Tooth


There are so many new flash drives coming out every day, each with its own interesting design, and it’s pretty hard to decide which one to present. But one made from the tooth of a sperm whale is definitely worth a look.

After carefully meauring and cutting the materials to fit the actual USB stick, Manyakus spent quite a long time carving the Celtic dragon he used as a decoration, but it was more than worth it.

When plugged into a USB port, the eye of the dragon lights green. If you’re looking to try somthing similar take a look at the photos of the work process, after the jump.
