Nothing In Your Pocket Will Damage This Spinning Flash Drive

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Flash drives are so cheap and ubiquitous that you probably have them stashed everywhere, even on your keychain. And to ensure that all the jostling against your keys, coins, and whatever else is in your pockets doesn't kill the drive, SanDisk has equipped its latest Cruzer with a spinning shield.
Available in capacities from four to thirty-two gigs, the durable Orbit drives top out at around £25 so they're not terribly expensive. It probably means they're not terribly fast either, but survival is the name of the game here, slow and steady. The Cruzer Orbit also comes packed with a host of encryption software that you'll probably immediately obliterate during a format, but it's nice to know it's there. [SanDisk via 7Gadgets]
