Stick of the Nation

Posted by: DT  :  Category: Crazy Funny

Have you ever considered displaying your national affiliation via flash drives? Ever thought of them as patriotic gifts?

It doesn’t matter if you’re at the office or killing time at a foreign airport. Whether you’re doing a presentation for a federal department or sticking it out on a military deployment – with patriotic flash drives you can greatly show your national byte. Or just invoke a bit of home.


For the brave American: The Statue of Liberty Flash Drive

Authentic in color and detail, this stick of liberty is accurately scaled at 330:1 and works best in a new port. At least 2GB can immigrate as well as emigrate and with the bigger and better version, even up to 16GB. To ensure safety of the digital citizen, a department of AES-256bit security is integrated along with password protection.

If the liberated files should prove too messy though it’s easy to erase and start all over again. Likewise, if installing order on the computer of conflict seems futile it’s easy to pull out of the quagmire. Then, for a well deserved rest, you can cover the USB connector with the base and your Statue of Liberty flash drive can stand proudly on your desktop.



For the loyal Brit: Big Ben Flash Drive

Although the Big Ben memory stick is not accurately scaled, it can strike powerfully with 1-16GB while you’re leisurely sipping on tea. Not falling short of the Statue of Liberty in other compartments, it too supports AES-256bit encryption as well as passwording. This ought to make it work as reliable as the real Big Ben which, by the way, is the world’s largest four-faced chiming clock (this for you uneducated non-Brits).

Though one may surely create a data empire with this Big Ben flash drive it isn’t truly loyal. That’s because it’s manufactured by Chinese company iMicro which one would have suspected rather with the USB Statue of Liberty, given the Chinese mass production of post 9-11 US flags. But astonishingly, that one is actually made by the American firm Super Talent. And I’m sorry lads, but the next example also shows that the British don’t have it quite right yet.


RAM Memoy Sticks imprinted with British Flags

As a memory stick of the other kind, this RAM Union Jack only sticks half-mast and most likely concealed from everyone’s view. Uhmmm…ok. I guess it’s the thought that counts and latter may still appreciate a set of these as marvellous patriotic gifts. After all, a set serves 2 x 2GB and the manufacturer, Crucial, could be British this time. I say “could” because this brand falls under Lexar Media products which in turn is a subsidiary of Micron Technology. So only god or the queen knows which country put the mark on these Union Jack memory sticks. I’m sure they would



Excusez-moi, what about the French?

Big White Emptiness with French Flag at the top


I would have loved to promote an Eiffel Tower flash drive here but sacrebleu and mon dieu, it’s nowhere to be seen. Honestly, you have to pardon me. But mabye the Statue of Liberty flash drive could work just as well here, seeing that the French created the Lady and gave her as a present to the Americans? After all, the designer of the Eiffel Tower – Gustav Eiffel – was also the engineer of the Statue’s inner structure. Yeah, eat that you freedom fries loving Americans! Merci.


As for other countries – while speaking of foods -, we could relate the Fortune Cookie Flash Drive to the Chinese, the Pizza Flash Drive to the Italians and the Sushi Flash Drive to the Japanese. Then we could associate the Hamburger Flash Drive with the USA as well as the Donut Memory Stick and USB Bacon Flash Drive. Oh right, we already got the Americans covered. Sorry about that!


If you still haven’t found something that resembles your country of origin or choice there’s hope left:


Custom Flag Flash Drives

Bearing a country’s flag with beautiful enamel coating you can exercise 2GB of patriotic duty. Now geeks of every nationality should be able to find happiness as I’m sure ebay sellers can make flash drives with any flag. At last, we’re really talking patriotic gifts!


But – let us also consider a general approach. After all, we live in global times with a multi-cultural society. So how about a neutral Patriot Flash Drive? With a Magnum, Razzo or Xporter you’re guaranteed to have compatibility. Because who can actually ensure that a Statue of Liberty memory stick will get along with a Toshiba laptop? Or that a Big Ben flash drive will tolerate Fujitsu Siemens? Well, my friends, that probably lies in your own hands.

    Haha! Great Idea. The market nowadays is ruled by so many good ideas. Love the liberty USB! What about a German one – perhaps a towel? :)
    Best regards

  4. DT Says:

    Hi Tobi,
    I don’t quite grasp your idea of a towel…? I guess for German we could use the VW Beetle flash drive. :)

  13. stacie @ aircooled vw parts Says:

    I actually prefer the statue of liberty one, even though I’m British. I think the Big Ben one isn’t that great. I love different things like this though, and they make great gifts for people who are always using computers.
