How to build a bulletproof flash drive
Flash memory is already nearly indestructible -- the digital storage medium can survive being doused in coffee, boiled, stomped on, and washed. Now, your vital files can escape getting shot, too, thanks to Pretec Electronics' i-Disk Bulletproof USB flash drive. The "ruggedized" drive has dual layers of metal to protect the flash-memory chip inside from fire, water, and bullets. Pretec hasn't set a price yet, but the drive will come with up to 2 gigabytes of capacity. No word yet on the prospects of a celebrity endorsement from 50 Cent.
