A Twilight USB Drive That Doesn’t Sparkle Or Stalk You: So What’s The Point?
Today’s burning question around the office: Does the world really need a USB flash drive with the Cullen crest on it? One the one hand, yes, it’s fully functional and caters to legions of rabid fangirls has the soundtrack on it. On the other hand, it’s about $20 more than a standard USB of the same capacity. Given that the soundtrack is currently selling in physical form for about $10, that leaves adoring fans paying an extra $10 for the convenience of… what? Being Twilight-oriented in every single aspect of their lives, including tech? (Disappointingly, the thing doesn’t sparkle. I feel like the makers really missed an opportunity, there.)
So what say you? Is this the kind of USB flash drive that tickles your inner vampire? There’s an array of novelty gadgets drives out there—including an MP3 player for the Jonas Brothers and, of course, Hello Kitty—but the novelty seems to come with a minimum price boost of $10. Is it worth it? Would you ever buy one, and, if so, why?
