    "Yeah, so this USB stick here contains 64GB!!! Cost me around 30 quid"
    "Mate, that's nothing I've got one that holds 1TB! AND it only cost me $4,000"
    "Haha whatever, prove it.."
    "Eat your words my friend, it's right h... hold on it might be in this pocket.... or maybe I left it on my desk... oh bother"

    Re: Kingston readies 1TB USB 3.0 stick. May cost $4,000

    so whats wrong with something like a touro 1tb for £65 that does 60mb/s ?
    thats just as portable.

    although it doesnt have the cool factor does it.
    but atleast youll have $3900 to buy a snow machine which makes everything else cool

    i think theyre not going to have that many sales.

    As the interview says, this is really for IT use, not personal.

    Why not concentrate on a 1tb SSD instead of a 1tb flash drive.

    I still don't see the advantage something like this offers over a 2.5" 1TB USB HDD considering the price, whether it's for personal/business/military/whatever?

    Indeed. I'd think most IT guys would be perfectly happy with a 1TB SSD and a skinny usb powered enclosure to keep it in. That would TBH be equally/more cool and you'd be able to nicely answer the call for more SSD (it's a feint call as they'd cost too much) space in a drive.

    I don't really get where they're going with this market wise.
