How small is too small? When you’re talking about USB drives, The Active Media Wink might just be there.
Small enough that you will most certainly want to keep its included key chain looped through the drive’s hole to keep from dropping it when inserting or removing from a USB port, the Wink is available in denominations up to 16GB.
Prices start at $7.95 for 2GB, and you can expect to pay $37.95 for the 16GB.
