“Girl’s Guide to Gadgets” blog Shiny Shiny is definitely underwhelmed with the aesthetic appeal of the latest offering from Taiwanese manufacturer Pretec, known for the iDisk Tiny, which the company started billing as “the world’s smallest USB flash drive” in 2003. The earrings are a manifestation of the new dime-sized 1 GB CU-Flash.
As far as I can tell, the earrings aren’t actually on the market yet, though Pretec’s reps will be wearing them to all the gadget shows. Even if I had pierced ears, I wouldn’t buy them for looks alone. The iDisk Tiny Luxury and iDisk Aqua are much cuter—and a lot less likely to be scratched or lost.
