Did science gone so far, or is it just another USB 3.0 Card Reader w/ pre-installed SDHC card in it?

What a concept! Who would have ever thought that people don't want 2" long, easily breakable devices sticking out the front/side of the PC or Laptop?

Great. I like it. You can leave it connected to the device without fear of knocking it, breaking it, damaging the port, etc. But so small, easily lost, needs a hole to attach a lanyard. If it's fast, then it could also be used as a boot/internal drive on those PCs with internal USB ports, so often seen on microserver boards like supermicro.

I've broken a USB port by running into it with my knee and breaking a USB pen drive also in that same process :(

Looks good but, way to small for me, Im really liking the new combo drives that have both mini USB and USB 3.0 with a keyring that's the way to go.
