Love It or Leave It? Ballpoint Pen With USB Drive

Pens are prime targets when it comes to built-in devices like spycams or flashlights. Now Digix from Korea is incorporating USB functionality into the standard ballpoint pen. Showcased on Geek Alerts, these pens come with a 1GB USB memory drive for all your on-the-go storage needs. Use as an actual pen or pop off the top cap to use the USB plug. Available in black, blue, red, and silver. Prices not released yet. I like the concept but the pens aren't exactly what I'd classify as glamorous. If they had a sleeker body I'd be all for them. What are your thoughts?

Awesome idea but people loose and steal pens all too often!

People would think I'm rude because I wouldn't let anyone borrow my pen.

I got these for all the men in my life for Fathers Day! It was a great hit! I got a good lot of them on e-bay for about 50 buck and they were all 1GB

I would use it if I had one but I guess that is what makes me such a geek.

Great idea, but not practical for me. I lose pens so often.

I simply loved these pens. Basically the small lid-shaped cap is really interesting. http://www.gadgetsblog.org/2007/08/22/ballpoint-pen-capped-with-usb/

Since I always lose my pens anywhere, this is a really stupid idea. So, I'd leave it.

I'm always losing my pens ... or having someone "borrow" them ... I'll leave it.

this would come in very handy. does it take replacable ink?

I like these, especially the black and silver ones, though I really think they should make a purple one... more things should come in purple.

What happens when the pen stops working or runs out of ink, can you replace the ink? Also who doesn't drop pens all the time or tap them on the desk, things you shouldn't do with the usb stick.

Great concept. I hope the pen doesn't write cheap.
