New Bunjee-Jumping USB Worm Arrives for the Holidays

4GB plush-toy USB thumb drives are the gift for the geek who has everything

Now there's a cuteness factor to your data leakage worries: New USB thumb drives disguised as fuzzy little plush toys.

Gizzy the Data Worm and Maggie the Maggot are hand-made "cozies" with a 4GB USB 2.0 flash drives tucked in them, and priced at $68.

The product description for Gizzy the Data Worm says he likes bungee jumping, but is usually happy to just sit and read a book. Aside from his obviously impressive memory, he's also a good speller and a whiz at Scrabble.

Who knew USB flash drives could be so cute. Oh -- and if you want one in time for the holidays, you have until December 10 to place your order online.
