Let’s be honest, there are thousands of stupid USB Flash drives out there that you can buy, clip to your key chains and show your friends with a stupid smile. Here are 5 Flash drives that fit the profile of stupid and others that are kind of cool.
Human “Thumb” Drive (Stupid)
Seriously, this isn’t the coolest USB flash drive, but it’s not the worst. A bit corny though. Sold by Himayashop.com you get a whopping 1 Gb for $98.99. Yeah, that’s not a typo, $98.99 for 1 Gb, but hey, it’s a thumb. (Image Source: Himayashop.com)
OCZ ATV USB Drive (Cool)
This one is for the serious flash driver. For $80.75 you get 32 Gb of memory from Amazon.com. It’s capped on one end is with a cap holder on the other end. It’s water resistant and comes with a rugger “shock-proof” rubber outer jacket. (Image: Amazon.com)
President Obama Flash Drive (Cool drive if you’re a supporter)
Poor President Obama. He’s the new face of, well, everything. This USB Flash drive says “Yes We Can”, just as long as we don’t have to loan any of the 2 Gb of memory to the banks. This drive comes preloaded with speeches from the President in Mp3 format. However it was reviewed and this is what one user said.
For the first few days, it seemed that things were looking up. The speed was good, the preloaded speeches were excellent, but as the 100 day mark approached, the Obama drive dwindled away. The hope of improvement was gone, the change… well the change was there, but not in the way I had expected.
Lowe’s Jimmie Johnson Nascar USB Drive (Stupid)
When you’re wondering where your flash drive is and you have to dig through your kids Matchbox and Hot Wheels to find it, you won’t think it’s so cool. This 4 Gb, 1:88 scale replica of Johnson’s car comes preloaded with driver videos and stuff as well as a lanyard with a Nascar logo. The coolest thing is the tail lights light up with activity. Nascar fans might not find that amusing as even “The Car Of Tomorrow” doesn’t have functional tail lights. Amazon also sells this at a humble price of $22.45. (Image: Amazon.com)
The Survivor USB Flash Drive (Cool)
The Survivor 16 Gb USB drive by Corsair comes with a cool, waterproof shell made from aircraft aluminum. For $41.99 at Amazon, you can dive up to 200 meters with your Survivor USB in tow. How cool is that? (Image Amazon.com)
Lady Liberty USB Flash Drive (Stupid)
I don’t care how much you love the good ole USA and lady Liberty, this USB Flash drive is rather stupid. For $8.95 you can order this 2Gb USB drive from Active Media Products LLC. (Image: Amazon.com)
Lacie iamakey USB Flash Drive (Cool)
You don’t have to have a cool lanyard or extra clip dangling from your key-chain. This one almost looks like a key and will blend in with your other keys. The iamakey USB Flash drive is equipped with 8Gb and costs $32.61 from Amazon.com, also the image source.
Wrist Band USB Drive (Not Too Stupid)
These little 2 GB rubber wristbands are popular amongst computer geeks everywhere. Available from Cables To Buy, they come in various colors. If you search around you might find some with a quirky little saying onm them like “Cowabunga, Dude” or “Live Long And Prosper”. (Image Source: Amazon.com)
Laser Pointer / Pen / USB Fl;ash Drive (Cool)
Cool until you let someone borrow your pen and they don’t give it back. For the person looking to multi-task and keep things consolidated, the 3-in-1 USB Drive, Pen and Laser pointer combines things in to one convenient package, ready to be stolen by co-workers that don’t know better or just don’t care. $11.89 get’s you 2 Gb from SDAT.

Teeny Weeny USB Flash Drive (The Worst USB Flash Drive EVER!!!)
That’s actually the trademarked name. The Teeny Weeny USB Flash drive is pretty self explanatory. Want to use it? Just pop the head off like Lorena Bobbitt and plug it in. The base of the penis glows red, letting you know that it’s “Turned on”…or that you’re just a perve. I’m not saying that I’m a total prude and don’t find this slightly amusing, but come on. If a guy brings this thing to work, he’s sure to get a sexual harrassment complaint. If a women takes it to work, it’s “cute”. $20 and you can get a penis full of 1 Gb of memory. Sorry, no self-respect included. Find it at TeenyWeenyDrive.com, but you have to be 18 to order. (Image: TeenyweenyDrive.com)
