      I have three of them. They are called Jump Drives and they use flash
      memory to store information more or less permanently like a CD ROM but they
      are re-writeable like a RAM chip. I really love mine and I am all the time
      swapping files between my Desktop and Laptop machines. I also use mine to
      swap pictures with my Brother when I go over to his howse. You can (if you
      are willing to spend between $300 and $500 dollars) get one that will hold
      about 4 Gigabytes. They only have two problems that I see. They are
      expensive so you would not use them for long term storage and they are
      slightly slower than RAM to write to.
