when the 1 tera byte HDD comes in then USB pen drives will cease to exist.
Only if the 1 tera byte HDDs are VERY small and portable will they make the USB pen drive cease to exist. The Pen Drive is a USB FLASH MEMORY DRIVE
and can support up to 2GB disk space, which is 1400 times more than a 1.44MB floppy disk. The Pen Drive USB flash disk is a plug and play device, just
simply plug into any USB port and the computer will automatically detect it as another removable drive. Now you can read, write, copy, delete and move
data from your hard disk drive to the Pen Drive or from the Pen Drive to your hard disk drive. You can even play MP3 files, run applications or view
videos directly from the Pen Drive and a lot more.....
The Pen Drive also supports flash ROM (EEPROM) for ISP (In-System Programming). You can change / update the PenDrive USB flash drive firmware anytime
and anywhere through USB port. For security demand, you can use the Pen Drive as a key to valuable information on your hard disk drive. With out the
key (which is the Pen Drive), the data is not accessible.
The Pen Drive is so compact that you can carry with you anywhere and you hardly notice its existence. It also comes in various storage capacities of
16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB and 2GB, so now you don't have to carry a laptop computer with you to work. The Pen Drive does not require
any battery, it does not need any software or cables and it is compatible with IBM PC / compatible desktop and laptop computers with USB or USB 2.0
