    Flash memory manufacturer SanDisk has announced a new high-capacity addition to its Cruzer Micro line-up. The new 8GB flash drive doubles the capacity of the existing Cruzer Micro drives, while maintaining the same dimensions. The Cruzer Micro 8GB ships with U3 smart technology. Co-Invented by SanDisk, U3 technology features embedded password manager and AVAST antivirus software in drive's memory. The drive is set to become available from mid-September and will cost $129.99 in the US.

    same with my previous flash drive, stupid computers at school, their USB hubs stick out more then casheti's pants while looking at gay porn, also bent, and snapped. :(

    I am unlucky with usb flash drives
