How to choose your PC peripherals
Carrie Dunn // 29 May 2008
I need a new flash drive to store my research on. So I go to Play.com, and see this utter piece of genius.
Yes, it’s a PINK flash drive. So who is it for? Why, for the ladies, of course. “The SanDisk Cruzer Fleur is a sleek, feminine, cap-less USB Flash Drive designed specially for women of all ages.” The product description goes on to explain how to use a pen drive, just in case our pretty little heads can’t get to grips with this newfangled technology.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m buying this sort of thing I’m looking for storage space and a decent price. I’m not all that fussed about its sleekness and its ‘femininity’ (which I can only assume actually means ‘pinkness’). Seriously, if this kind of thing didn’t happen ALL THE SODDING TIME, I’d laugh.
