A USB drive that's actually useful

One button syncs device with your computer

A-Data

Crave has seen all manner of USB storage devices, many of dubious value. But A-Data has recently come out with a USB drive that not only seems well designed but is also practical.

Chip Chick says the 12GB "Mini Cube" (not to be confused with the "Cube Mini") has a plug that folds away into a square case less than 2 by 2 inches that's not really a cube at all, which is a good thing for space-saving reasons. What's most impressive about this $125 device is a "one-touch backup function" that can automatically synchronize the drive with your PC with the push of a button.

It may not be gold or shaped like a religious figure, but we can live with that.
