Probably the only cool thing that I have heard from CES so far. :whistle:

That's got to be waaaay over the dollar per gigabyte mark :whistle:

I would still probably find a way to gum it up with crap after about 2 weeks just like every other USB drive I go through ;p

I hope it comes with some hefty warranty too.

If they can come with with a nub version it'd be a great replacement for my car deck music storage... (currently a 32G about half full.... ;) ).

Seriously though... 1T? Who in their right mind needs 1T worth of flash storage, and if you could actually use it, would you trust that much data to something you could accidentally drop down the drain?

Well someone had to come out with this - I was actually expecting it to take another 6 months. I'm glad it's Kingston though - I wouldn't trust my data to one of those unknown brands.
I could see something like this being useful for embedded systems / data logging, e.g. miniature camera where the size of a 2.5" enclosure or a clicky hard drive that doesn't like accelerations would be a downside. For anything bigger you're probably better off with a 2.5" SSD for the performance or a HDD for the $/GB.
For the record, I think of things like this because I built a plant monitor for a school project - I'm not keeping tabs on any humans in this way :whistle:
