    Would you buy this flash drive providing it was small, cheap and had 4 or 8 GB of memory.

    If it were aesthetically pleasing, worked properly, and wasn't much(if at all) more expensive than a normal flash drive of the same capacity, yes. But I wouldn't pay a premium for it and wouldn't use it if it were ugly or bulky.

    Good idea though, especially for those of us with portables(i.e. MacBooks with only 2 USB ports). It's just not a luxury that I would pay a serious premium for.

    I probably wouldn't, just because I use a thumbdrive so sparingly that it would be a pain to have to plug it in, plug Device B in it's backend, use the thumbdrive, then unplug Device B, unplug the thumbdrive, and plug Device B back into the computer - because the only case in which having a thumbdrive that doesn't hog USB ports is if USB ports are very limited on the computer in question.

    It's a really cool idea, but for probly more than a few people a bit impractical.

    :)

    No, it'd cost the same as a regular flash drive of that size and would be as small, if not smaller than regular flash drives.

    Seeing as most people don't have a flash drive plugged in all the time, I thought this idea would be better suited for a 3G wireless broadband stick. I mean, people who use those have them plugged in all the time, and it'd be handy if it didn't hog a port :)

    This, or for wireless keyboard/mouse receivers. They are very small nowadays, but they still use one port.

    Nano receivers I love them because they don't get in the way.

    Indeed, but on a MBP they block half of the USB ports.
