Are flash drives the equivalant of the pocket protector? I mean does carry around a flash drive in your pocket mean the same thing as wearing a pocket protector?:D

If you're cool you carry an MP3 player in your pocket, which can also be used to transfer files.

Nerds carry it on a lanyard around their neck.

Just to add to your fund of trivia - a "pocket protector" is also known as a "nerd pack"...
And if you really want to be cool, you can get those USB flash drives built into a Pez dispenser.

Or if you want an MP3 player/pocket knife...the Victorinox Swiss Beat is kinda nice:

I have one from an old emergency when I couldn't burn a CD and needed something transferred to the laptop (thanks to Meer & all that helped avert that train wreck), but I was talking to some folks while we were walking the cancer relay and two of them worked for companies that used them for media storage instead of CDs????? Kinda hard to label & easier to loose, but what do I know???
