PNY 16GB Hook Flash Drive

Take a quick look in your drawer and you might just find more flash drives then pens—they’re super-common these days, but most of them are terribly forgettable. So if you’re going to carry one, it might as well look good and have plenty of storage space. Enter PNY’s 16GB Hook Flash Drive ($45), available at your neighborhood Apple Store.

There are two things we really like about this drive: its size, and the really cool hook that’s built in. It’s not just small, it’s tiny; just as wide as a USB port. At the back end is the sliding hook that allows you to attach the drive to your keys, bag, or whatever else you carry around with you. And since it’s metal, it can take a bit more of a beating than cheap plastic models. Given that it offers as much storage capacity as a $150 iPod nano at under a third of the price, it’s worth the investment.
