USB Flash Drives Market Growth

The Technology Review, an MIT publication, mentions that the market for USB flash drives has reached 2 billion dollars in 2005. Plus full linux systems can now fit on these thumb-sized gadgets.

The website also surmised that due to these capabilities, USB drives might be rivaling a different storage sector, online storage. One advantage here is that USB Drives are seen as more secure since you carry the data with you. And if you have a full-fledged OS in there, you can just pop it into a PC and now you are truly carrying all your digital data around.
