Ever been royally screwed by a broken flash drive? Corsair has the solution, with their insanely overprotected flash drive, the “Corsair Survivor.”

Data retrieval will be a thing of the past with this bad boy – it’s encased in CNC-milled, aircraft grade aluminum, (I don’t know what that means), comes molded in a shock-dampening collar and EPDM seal, (I don’t know what that means either), and is water-resistant to a depth of 200 meters. (I have no idea why you’d go swimming with this).

Corsair claims that reviewers and bloggers have baked, boiled, dropped, run over and microwaved this thing without breaking it, so…holy lord, these are all conditions that would never be met in real life, yet I’m happy have been enacted!

A sixteen gigabyte model will run you fifty dollars on Amazon, which isn’t too badĀ  – it comes with a USB extension cord, some dogtags, a 10 year warranty and bragging rights. Lots and lots of worthless bragging rights.

I've written for National Lampoon & Cracked Magazine, been featured on NPR's "Marketplace", and had a pilot screen at the New York Television Festival. I've performed stand-up all over NY, Boston & LA. I love Babylon 5, yelling at the TV with my dad and naps.
