The Wink USB Drive doesn't have a protective cap but is rugged enough to live on your keychain

The humble USB Flash drive has been hit by the miniaturization ray again with Active Media Products introducing what it claims is the world’s smallest 16GB USB drive. The Wink measures just 1.2 x 0.5 x 0.1 inches and weighs in at only 1/20th of an ounce. It’s so small that looking at the pictures you’d be forgiven for thinking the drive may disappear inside a USB port never to be seen again.

To keep the size and weight of the Wink down there is no cap for the USB connector, but the company says the drive is still quite rugged. The drive is actually waterproof and is coated in a high-impact polymer outer shell, which features an eyehole for easy attachment to an included keychain. The Wink is available in 2, 4, 8 and 16GB capacities and is Windows 7 and OS X compatible.

The Wink USB Drive from Active Media Products is available now with the 2, 4, 8, and 16GB drives priced at US$7.95, $10.95, $19.95 and $37.95 respectively.

Just the right size for sneaking home oodles of private corporate data. Wonder if you could swallow it for espionage reasons? No wonder the DoD now blocks all USB ports for mass storage devices... Too much sensitive data to lose on these easily lost flash drives.

Hunh? This isn\\\'t new. I bought a kingston micro-mini-SD kit with a microSD -USB adapter that is practically identical to the picture above. source: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?rlz=1C1GGLS_enUS335US335&sourceid=chrome&q=kingston microSd reader&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=18242863874430647338&ei=RiwES-i3McjSnAfbj4hy&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=image&resnum=4&ved=0CB8Q8gIwAw
