So when they’re not making them out to look like a spoonful of cereal or kitten ears, they sometimes give them higher capacity or make them really freaking small.

It comes in 16GB capacity and is compatible with Windows XP, 2000 and Vista as well as Mac OS X and Linux. There’s no word on price or availability yet.
