Oh no! Must hide this picture from my daughter, she’s such a collector.
I recently purchased a generic looking USB 1GB flash drive. Nothing really fancy about it except that it was colored pink, which my daughter really loved. I sure had high daddy-points that night. Fresh out of the package, she pushed it into her macbook and began using it as her primary storage device for (oh!) all those Hannah Montana photos. Cute!
I think one of the perfect tests for a “gadget” to succeed in the market is IF you can get the kids buy-in. Parents have such a hard time saying NO (!), and now Mimoco (http://www.mimoco.com/mimobots/) have made it a little harder. I could just hear her say “bud dad i really (10x) need that! Oh brother!
Hop onto Mimoco’s website and you’d see that most of their USB flash drives are either sold out or have low stocks available. And it’s not even Christmas yet!
These flash babies come with their own fairy tale story even… argghhh (must hide this page!).
Mimobots are available in 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB capacities, produced in limited editions, are hi-speed USB 2.0, compatible with both Mac and Windows, and are enhanced for Windows Vista’s ReadyBoost technology.
It has its own myspace, friendster, twitter & facebook page.
Retails for about $40 each.
