Free 64MB USB Hard Drive

Bellsouth is promoting their new Metro Ethernet Service, and they’re giving away a free 64MB USB flash drive. You don’t have to buy anything from them, just enter your name, address, and email.

I’m not sure if it’s a guarantee you’ll get it, but it’s Bellsouth, a reputable company (and good service when I had their phone plan while living in Jacksonville, FL.)

I have a 128MB one that NVIDIA sent me for Christmas last year, and it has proven to be very handy on many occasions. Think of it as 128 floppy disks that is a little smaller than a cigarette lighter. No setup is required if you use Windows 2000 or XP, just plug it into an available USB port, and it recognizes it as a regular hard drive that you can store data on. I’ve used it to store documents, photos, and music. I used it to backup data before I reformatted my hard drive, and I also use it to store programs to install at friends or family’s house. I’ve got my favorite web browser on it, as well as all my personal FTP settings, so I can update any webpage that I like to work on, anywhere. Definitely a cool little gadget to have, especially when you can get one for free.

Update: This never came in. Bleh.
