Finally I got myself a small little portable 8GB thumb drive.
Only thing is that it's not really just a thumb drive but rather an 8GB Micro SDHC card.
It just amazes me that how far we have come in terms of how much we can fit into something this small now. And how low prices have got on these things.
On a nice side note, this is the FIRST SD card that I have found that supports ReadyBoost in my U1010's SD card slot. NICE!
