I was thinking to myself the other day that my current Swiss Army knife was looking a bit old and ratty. This would be a perfect replacement. :D

Yeah, there's something so "Jetsons-like" in having a device that I can toss in my pocket, cut an apple with, etc and realize that it has a larger storage capacity than my first hard drive. Anyone remember "Conner" hard drives? :p

Do I remember Conner??? You mean, before Seagate bought them out? ;)
My first disc drive was a Seagate 20MB MFM drive. In my 8088/10MHz box w/640K RAM and EGA. :)

Hell does anyone remember Hercules back when they were a real player? And I mean well before Guillemot bought them out.

That usb is sure going to like those metal shavings from the file. I'll stick to my Leatherman wave.
