It’s an unfortunate side effect of my gender (that would be, male) that it’s not generally socially acceptable for me to wear jewelry. This sucks, because shiny things are awesome. I try, therefore, to mix the sparkly with the practical, but it’s hard to find stuff that fulfills both of these criteria. We’ve written about these itsy bitsy teeny tiny Super Talent Pico-C flash drives before (and I love ’em), but they’ve just released a new one that’s been plated in 24 carat gold. Gold! The great part is that although you will (of course) pay a premium for such luxury (and the limited edition status it comes with), it’s only about 5 bucks, bringing the price of the 8gb version to somewhere between $30 and $40. Totally worth it, if you ask me, especially since the drive itself is no slouch: it’s shock resistant, water resistant, writes at 30 mbps, and weighs less than a nickel.
Doesn’t look like NewEgg has them in stock yet, but you can pick one up from eWiz.com for $32.
