So how is it a no-name company in China can make a $5 USB stick no larger than the USB connector itself? How are they pulling it off? Why is it you can't make a DIY thumb drive? There has to be a way, not because it's better than a SanDisk or a Cruiser, etc...but because we can!!Sure, you can go out and spend $5-$10 bucks on a USB card reader...but wouldn't it be cool to make your own mini "solid state drive"?
Dang. So much for being a weekend project! This seemed like it should have been so simple.
