Thanks to a new partnership between Kingston and Paramount Digital Entertainment (PDE), a division of Paramount Pictures, you'll have another option for purchasing your favorite movies: flash memory. Instead of buying a traditional DVD or Blu-ray Disc, the two companies are hoping you'll like their new offer to purchase movies on Kingston USB drives and SD cards. Full-length motion picture feature films will be available to consumers as part of a bundle package and for sale.

“This unique agreement enables PDE to make available its entertainment offerings on USB and SD cards,” said Alex Carloss, EVP and GM of Paramount Digital Entertainment. “As more and more movies are viewed on computers and other portable devices, having a relationship with Kingston will become increasingly important to Paramount for years to come.”

“Kingston is very excited to join forces with Paramount Digital Entertainment on this venture as they are one of the most innovative and forward thinking studios for digital distribution,” said Rick Webb, vice president, consumer markets group, Kingston. “PDE adds great value to our memory products. We look forward to working with them to bundle additional Paramount content on our full line of USB drives and Flash memory cards.”

Currently, "Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen" is available at OfficeMax stores for $29.99. The movie comes on a Kingston DataTraveler I drive.

Personally I'm all for this partnership and the whole idea in general.

this may work out into a way for pirates to get movies easier than they do now.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
