Poker-chip USB drive is a good bet

As USB keys go, this one kills

Engadget

With USB storage keys ranging from the ridiculous to the obnoxious , we were beginning to think that it was impossible to find one that we'd even consider buying. But leave it to a game of chance to restore what little faith we had in product marketing.

Memorex's "Poker Chip Flash Drive" is a bit late to the poker party that's become a national craze, but it makes up for much of that with an admirable design that conceals its 1GB key in what looks like a stack of three clay chips. In keeping with the theme, Engadget says, the USB drive includes "software to play Texas Hold 'Em right from your PC." If it arrives on schedule at Target this month, we'll go all in.
