Now that thumb drives like the one-inch Imation Atom are small enough to ingest. Perhaps parents should talk to their children about the dangers of eating Flash memory.
The Atom comes in sizes of 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB, and is not much bigger than a paper clip.
It works with Windows, Mac and Linux computers, and it lets users protect data with a password and split the storage space into multiple virtual drives.
Most interestingly, these tiny cool gadget support Windows Vista's ReadyBoost technology.
ReadyBoost allows users to potentially increase the performance of a computer without adding more RAM.
Luckily, these cool gadgets come with a lanyard that will allow concerned parents to attach the drive to something bulky, like a rubber ducky or a brick.
