Super Talent's special edition 64GB USB flash drive is available only with 24K gold plating and is claimed to be the world's smallest at this capacity

Super Talent Technology has announced a special edition gold edition Pico-C flash drive which is claimed to be the smallest of its kind. The 64GB NAND Flash storage solution offers 30MB per second read speed and 15MB write, is USB 2.0 compatible and is just 1.23 x 0.48 x 0.13-inches (31.3 x 12.4 x 3.4mm) in size.

Weighing less than a nickel at just 0.21 ounces (6g) and marketed as both rugged and water resistant, the special edition Pico-C 64GB has been treated to a 24K gold-plated finish. The ring loop at one end lends itself to being attached to a keyring or carry strap but its flashy gold exterior could just see the drive becoming this year's must-have geeky fashion accessory.

The drive doesn't sport a full USB plug like the Moskeyto from LaCie and isn't as snug a fit to the USB port. Its capless design makes it similar to the Super Stick Mini but it is a bit thicker to accommodate four times the storage capacity offered by the Kingmax drive.

Pico-C 64GB is available for US$165.

24k gold is just dumb. Not durable. It would scratch and wear off in mo time and look cheap and Nauru.

I agree with Galen. If I\'m going to pay the money for metal, why not 1090 Carbon steel alloy, Rex 121 or even aggregated diamond nanorods. Geek out on the survivability of the thing instead of the bling.

Does any company make an MP3 player which has a USB plug-in? If someone made one of those, I\'d buy it in a minute! Then I could just keep upgrading my flash drive with more and more GB (like this 64GB model) or even have separate flash drives with different genres of music to plug in... Could find such an animal using google search... Anyone have a lead?
