Considering how many golden pigs and boars we saw last year, it might seem that the noble rat is getting slighted this Lunar New Year. Kingston, however, is doing its best to give the rodent some respect.

The "Data Traveler 101" is a 2GB flash drive that won't break the bank , piggy or otherwise, according to Chip Chick. And at less than $14 the USB key, which bears the a rat and an inscription etched in red, may be the cheapest limited edition ever made.
