Yes we can make a USB Flash Drive with Barack Obama’s face on it, and yes, some company can make a few bucks off of it.
Of course, there is more to this flash drive than just a picture of the 44th President of the United States. No, this 2GB flash drive has 30 MB worth of bonus material.
This material includes the famous “Race Speech” in MP3 format which is about a good hour’s worth of audio. In addition to that, there are several other speeches on the thumb drive in PDF format. The Obama thumb drive also includes an official photo of the man himself from the White House, that the user can print and frame.
This reminds me of that Ghostbusters thumb drive that PNY put out a while ago. That one had the movie in DRM format, and I’m surprised that the Obama drive doesn’t have some video footage of the president. I was hoping this administration would be all over that.
So is this the beginning of thumb drives with a theme of world leaders? Why not. I can’t imagine what other countries are doing in light of this. As for now, the Obama thumb drive is available for a low price of just $10. Any of that money going into a re-election campaign?
