      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.
