"I imagine most of us have used a “sneakernet” at one time or another, right? What, you don’t know what a "sneakernet" is? Let me explain then. Assuming you have more than one PC in your place of residence, let’s say you have a 4MB game patch to add to the PC in the other room without internet access or network access. By coping that file to a disk and carrying it to the other PC you have just created a “sneakernet”! Get it? Sneakers? Now, with this being a 4MB file, it won’t fit on a floppy disk. Who uses those these days anyway? Your other choices are to burn it to a CD, or copy it to a flash drive. A flash drive, or thumb drive as some refer to it, is a small device the plugs directly into your type-A USB connection on your computer. It consists of a printed circuit board and NAND-type memory. They are small, light-weight and are powered by the USB port they are plugged into. They come in a variety of sizes. The first one I ever bought was only 128MB, while the one being reviewed here is a whopping 4GB!"
