Super Talent Announces 18-Carat Solid Gold USB Drive
Limited Edition 8GB Pico-C Drive is the Ultimate Executive Gift

San Jose, California – October 28, 2008 – Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced a limited edition 18-carat solid gold USB drive that comes with a serialized Certificate of Authenticity.

The Pico-C has become the hallmark of style and quality in USB drives. Prized for its beautiful design and incredibly small size, the Pico-C is also water resistant and fast, supporting up to 200X (30MB/sec) data transfer speeds. The Pico-Cs amazing qualities account for the scores of prestigious Awards the Pico-C has amassed, including being featured on the July-08 cover of Popular Science and being named as a Top 10 Record-Breaking Consumer Gadget by Gizmodo.

Now, for a limited time only, Super Talent is offering an 8GB custom-made 18-Carat solid solid gold Pico-C drive that includes:

-         Serialized Certificate of Authenticity
-         18-carat gold keychain
-         FIPS certified AES-256 Encryption software
-         Your  text or logo laser etch onto the drive at no charge
-         Black velvet jewelry box

This rare collector's item makes an eloquent corporate gift, and is available only on a preorder basis for a limited time, with three to four weeks lead time. Part number STC8GBPCKG is offered to resellers at $599.

“We fused advanced technology with precious metals into a precision crafted device with no equal,” said Mr. Jin Kim, Super Talent design engineer.

This just in: Super Talent gold plates old product, etches your logo on it, bumps speed up to new standards, and charges $566 more. Super Talent President: "We're officially out of ideas."

Those were gold colored. These are real gold. I was going to say they would make a nice necklace, but reading that old post I know were that conversations going.

Sleazy corporate CEO's can have these beautiful gold USB drives attached to the rip-cords of their corporate GOLDEN-PARACHUTES (perhaps they really deserve a GOLDEN SHOWER instead). I am really bitter about that Wall St. bailout, if you care...
