Thumb Drives
Miniature hard drives, also called "thumb drives," are becoming a common piece of gear among military professionals, including Marines in Iraq. Suitably named, the drives are about the size of a person’s thumb, able to store large amounts of information in an incredibly small amount of space. Troops are able to use this technology to save family pictures, journal entries, work files and more. U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Paul W. Leicht | Story |
