If you happen to be stranded on an island with nothing but a coconut tree to keep you company (while providing you with shade and plenty of coconuts to help you pass your time), surely you would not mind receiving a message in a bottle as man was not created to be an island on his or her own. Of course, if you happen to have a pencil and a piece of paper, you too, can scribble your very own message, place it in a bottle, and throw it away, wondering who might very well receive it sometime down the road. In this day and age, you might want to take the symbolic route with the £19.99 Message In A Bottle USB Flash Drive.
It is definitely a modern day twist to an age old issue, and it is nice that things have changed a whole lot these days. Of course, it goes without saying that this 4GB USB flash drive in a bottle is not waterproof, so toss it into the ocean at your own risk. Something tells me that the recipient who is stuck on an island would appreciate a handwritten note more than something that is stashed away on a USB flash drive, as chances are there are no power outlets available to power the computer or notebook to read this USB flash drive.
