Lexar JumpDrive Mercury - With E-Ink!

Lexar JumpDrive Mercury - Gizmodo
Lexar’s newest addition to its USB flash drives at CES is the JumpDrive Mercury. If you’ve ever had a problem with knowing how much storage space you have left on your drive, this Mercury takes care of that with an integrated capacity meter. In fact, this meter gives you the info you want without ever having to be plugged into your PC. The display, created by E Ink Corp, is paper-thin and unbreakable (for klutzes like me). The drive will come in 1GB and 2GB capacities.

Well, it looks like E-Ink is finally here. here is the first compelling product I've seen. Now you can tell at a glance if your thumbdrive is full or not. No power needed. An E-Ink reader/book is being released by Sony this April (in Japan)pictured below.


Very cool. I think I'll wait for the non-Sony version, on account of Sony being a bunch of ass hats.
