Topic: Tiniest flashdrive
I'm looking for a USB flash drive that is as small as possible, so I can leave it permanently installed in the I8. The idea is that I will have an offline firmware that will live on it, and it will remain installed in the back when I ship the I8 off to my family on the west coast; they will never have to touch it or plug/unplug anything beyond the power cord.
Anyways, the two I came across were as follows:
The DataTraveler was so much cheaper (and still had good reviews), so I just decided to go with it. Unfortunately I haven't had time since I got it to move my development work over to it, so it's been hanging out idly in the back of my Chumby One. I think it will go well on the back of the I8, as the I8's USB ports are slightly indented (maybe 1-2mm), and there is also a lip over the top (another 1mm or so), so the device should be adequately shielded from bumps and nudges that might dislodge it. On the C1, whose USB ports are flush to the back, the DataTraveler does stick out about 4mm or so and isn't too terribly obtrusive, but is definitely noticeable if you look at the back.
While getting links, I just stumbled across the Sandisk Cruzer Fit... its price is much more in line with the DT's than the MosKeyto's, and I definitely trust Sandisk when it comes to flash memory.
