    Technogeeks unite!

    Okay, I just bought what I think is my favorite technology item yet...

    [IMG]images/img/cruzer.jpg[/IMG]

    It's the "Cruzer" 512-meg USB hard drive. Just plug it into any computer, and you've got a tiny portable storage device, about as big as your pinky.

    I'm on-site with a client who uses them all over, so I had to get one to do my job, but I love it! It's extremely handy.

    I've also recently purchased 2 webcams - one for my wife's computer, and one for my laptop, so we can see each other while we chat when I'm away from home. It works pretty slick, and I finally got to show her around my hotel room

    Next stop: a Palm Tungsten, like Bill's (the only person who's a bigger technogeek than me, I think).

    Bear with me as I'm not a huge techno-geek, more like a wannabe Anyways, do you need to download software for it on each computer you plug into? This definitely sounds like something I can use for my work laptop.

    Sweet!
    I have one but it's small. I store all my passwords on it with Roboform, and it runs Firefox. and there's a little room left over for U2 mp3s and porn.

    I really want a dual layer DVD burner for my next toy. My current DVD burner was the best toy I'd gotten in awhile.

    I have a 128 MB one of those and it's gotten plenty of use the past few months. No more wasting CD's for just a few files or trying to figure out cable connections. It looks like time may have run out on the floppy disk.

    Speedbump, that's the beauty of it. You don't need software. When you plug it in, it immediately shows up on your Windows Explorer as a "removable drive" assigned to your next free drive letter. It's quick and easy, and fast.

    My husband's on his fourth handheld pocket PC. He keeps trading up! I'm not even sure what model he currently has.

    ETA: He's got a Tungsten E, if that means anything? He's a hardcore geek

    Sure beats lugging around an old 1GB hard drive for data transport. (Yes, I've seen it happen.)

    Thanks John. I'm gonna have to look into seeing if my work will pay for a few of these. I work at home as well and this would be great instead of having to use a cd.

    ETA: Just checked out the prices. Not bad at all. Even the 1GB is affordable.
