  Their huge popularity has taken us to give them multiple names: pen drive, memory stick, flash drive, flash memory, key-ring, lighter, prick, stick, bug… or simply, USB. Their small size allows to build them in any everyday object such us key-rings, pens, lighters, watches and even Swiss knives. Big enterprises have adopted them as company gifs or merchandising. And as it happened with portable phones, more and more types started to appear as their used spread and they became popular.

The truth is that this gadget, resilient to scratches and dust, has displaced CDs, floppy disks and alike for data carrying, because of its memory capacity –up to 8 GB!–, for its lightness, its low cost and its lasting durability, as they can keep data for 10 years and are one-million-times rewritable.

  Many devices which make our lives much easier, come from ideas conceived in the days of yore. Although it’s true to say that they’ve been much improved, but back in the 19th Century there were people dedicated to create intriguing thingamabobs with the intention of solving everyday problems. Many of them kept evolving and all of us have one at home.

Maurice Collins is a British man, a retired businessman, who has an amazing valuable collection made up of over one thousand four hundred historical gadgets.

You didn’t remember to download and empty it and you actually need all the data stored there.
