Gizmodo EIC Annalee Newitz recently waxed poetic about her new Android-compatible flash drive, and we've found a terrific deal today on a similar item. So why would you want one of these things?
The awesome part is that it has a micro USB connector on one side, and USB 3.0 on the other. Perfect for moving all the pictures and vids from my phone to another machine. I always carry a spare flash drive with me, and this was a big upgrade — mostly because I'm sick of uploading files from my phone to Dropbox or Drive in order to get them onto my laptop. I want to save things locally, not pass them through somebody else's server farm.
I'd also add that these are great for storing movies and other media for long trips, especially if your phone or tablet is running low on storage. But whatever your motivations, this is a one-day deal, so grab one while you can. There are also smaller capacities available at lower prices. [SanDisk 32GB USB/MicroUSB Flash Drive, $10]
If you want to spend a little more, this 32GB wireless flash drive is also on sale, today only. It'll work just like a standard flash drive, but hit one button, and it transforms into the world's smallest wireless media server, allowing you to pull up files on any of your devices, including iPhones and iPads.
