Sony launches "Tiny"

Sony today launched its Micro Vault Tiny drive, a portable and removable storage device offering capacities from 256MB to 4GB. The drive is roughly half an inch wide, just over one inch long, and as thick as a quarter. Sony's "Tiny" comes in five color-coded capacities that include 256MB (orange), 512MB (violet), 1GB (blue), 2GB (green), and 4GB (purple). The accessory ships with a clip-on carry case designed to easily attach to apparel, and features Virtual Expander technology which automatically compresses data as it is transferred onto the drive, decompressing that data as it is retrieved. The 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB Tiny drives are already available, with the 4GB model planned for release later this year. Pricing for Sony's Micro Vault Tiny drives range from $30-200.

    compression software

    as long as their compression software doesn't suck so bad like that U3 c*** on my sandisk. What a pain in the a**! Of course, the uninstaller is winblows only, too.
