The Cloud is where it’s at, if we’re to believe all of the tech articles flooding the internet espousing the virtues of cloud computing and cloud storage. While it really does have its benefits – being able to access your files wherever you are in the world even when you don’t have your own computer, and the safety cloud storage brings to your data in the event your hardware suffers a catastrophic failure – it’s understandable that a lot of people still worry about the issues of security.

There are USB flash drives, and there are USB flash drives. There are so many USB flash drives that you can buy today – you can find practically any shape, size, and color. Of course, many of those are not worth much. I am sure you know what I mean – I have seen some USB flash drives that make me want to tear my hair out!
This USB flash drive I saw recently listed on Etsy is something else, though. Combining the functions of a portable data storage device and a harmonica may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but I think that it is brilliant! Perhaps this is because I am very much a music person and would love to play an instrument if I had any skill…
In any case, the FlashHarp is the perfect gadget if you are looking for a new USB flash drive (you can’t have too many of them anyway) AND if you need to go busking every now and then. The FlashHarp doubles as a harmonica, and if you don’t know how to make music on one, the kit takes care of that. It includes a harmonica lesson video titled “Five Basic Steps to Playing”.
The FlashHarp comes in two versions – 2GB and 4GB. The higher capacity version is shipped for free, so you might want to go for that. The kit also includes a plastic cap for the USB plug and comes in a recycled hard plastic box.
It’s a no brainer. For $59.95, you get this kit and you get to learn how to play a musical instrument. Forget all the Star Wars and Hello Kitty flash drives for now. Do you know anyone who has a USB flash drive cum harmonica? Worst case scenario – you can always play for some money to get coffee or whatever your poison may be.
