The Coolest USB Drive Ever

USB drives are clearly cool, and clearly getting cheap. My dad wears one around his neck with all his important files. He knows the files are safe and, as long as he can commandeer a PC, he can use them.

MokaFive is taking that concept one step further: Put your files, yours apps and your OS on one honking thumb drive. This way, your full environment is always with you.

If this catches on, MokaFive execs see a day when inexpensive PCs are nearly everywhere -- your hotel room, lobbies, wherever. All you do is plug in the drive and that plain, old, vanilla PC turns into your own personal computing servant.
