Micro Mini USB 2.0 Drive

Iomega today announced that it is shipping the new Iomega Micro Mini USB 2.0 Drive, a fast solid-state USB 2.0-enabed drive in an ultra-small package that offers transfer rates of up to 8MB/sec: "Lightweight at only 0.3 ounces (9 grams), the new drive fits in the smallest places and includes three snap-on caps in three different colors, a keychain, and an illuminating USB cable and dog tag lanyard (128 MB model only), that gives users the choice of carrying an Iomega Micro Mini drive or wearing one." The bus-powered drive is now available in 64MB ($50) capacity, while the 128MB model ($70) will ship in March. [photo/link updated]

    100% accurate....

    except for the picture of the micro mini, which is wrong, and the web link, also wrong. Go here:

    Limited...

    Gee, 5 64MB units would cost about the same as an iPod mini.
    And some call the iPod mini expensive.

    expensive

    ah, but some will argue that the 64mb is solid state so is worth it...

    Backwards compatible?

    Will it work with regular USB?

    still expensive

    Both Sony and Sandisk have 128 USB flash drives you can get at Staples for $39.99. I don't really care that Iomega's drive is the slightest bit smaller.

    Seriously,

    Seriously, $250 is just one hour with an escort. And some call the iPod mini expensive.
