What is it?

Thumb drive?
Jump drive?
USB key?
USB port? (that one’s just wrong, the port’s the hole in the side of the CPU, but I’ve still heard it used for drive)
Flash drive?
Key drive?
Port drive (no, really)

Unlike ipods, walkmen, xerox machines and blackberries bits of technology that made their way into our culture under the auspices of a single brand, we have nothing to call this thing that everyone seems to have come up with simultaneously.

I have never used mine, and the reason is probably laziness but I like to think it’s for lack of a noun. Thoughts?

Something underground’s gonna come up and carry me
