3. Coming This Week: The World's Best Flash Drive

We've been talking about it for a while, and now it's going to happen. We're releasing our very own flash drive. It's got a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface that's fully 2.0 compatible. 5x better portable software performance over a USB 2.0 connection than most current retail drives. It's pre-loaded with the PortableApps.com Suite. It's got a durable high-impact aluminum case you can have engraved with your name, url or phrase of your choice. And it's packaged in an attractive custom tin which makes a great gift. Best of all, it will start at under $40. The complete details will be available this week at:
