Sign up to the newsletter, and get a free 128mb USB stick sent to your address. I received mine today.
Might be useful for a digital photo frame, or something of the sort. Either way, it's free :)
128mb? Are we living in 2001?
if the offer is 128Gb then I'll look twice.
What year are you in mate?
To Michaelz101: 2017
To nubix: 2021 would be 500GB - 1TB USBs
To Xanthorrhoea se…
How do you know?
1TB USBs in 2021? Are we STILL using USB to connect peripherals in 10 years time?!
It is my awesome PLANT power.
Becasue Microsoft computers 'cooked' their new prototype connector during testing.
1.21 gigawatts? 1.21 gigawatts? Great Scott!
To scotty, yes, USB 29.0 !!
Get 6 and run RAID5 on them, hahaha. :)
Hey maybe you can send it to somebody you want to play a prank on and tell them it's a 4GB stick and imagine them scratching their head. Ok ok, it's mean.
Yeah, I am still in 1981. USA President just phoned me over hotline for a 128MB Storage Unit to hold their sensitive docs.
not even the lowest quality downloaded pornography wouldn't fit into those
Try the ones 10 years ago, it should work.
stop hatin' already
Any plans to get a bunch of them? Last time you did it with the UBISOFT. LOL
I found this one for 256MB
anyone tried it?
I'm not going to neg it as it is free, but seriously, who'd bother!?
I did, looks perfect for a digital photo frame!
Well, I didn't know what size it was, till it arrived today… Disappointed that it was only 128mb, but oh well, it looks nice :P
It's great that you have actually received it, despite that it was last decade's size. I have seen countless number of Verisign "Free USB drive" ads over the years (recently at 8GB). Security products as well, although I have not heard people getting the drive. I got sucked in at the beginning as well — never received the drive, but endless spams from Verisign.
Yeah that perplexed me quite a bit. Surely it does not add credibility to them, and I thought credibility passed along a 'chain' is the core of how digital certificates work…
Wow thanks. I've actually been wondering where I could get a USB with 256MB or less. (I would actually like 32MB or 64MB, but 128MB Will work too :D
do more than 1!
psh I only need one… unless I end up breaking it which I am likely to do considering I will probably be taking it apart >_>
And learn the basics of a USB. :]
Hmmm… giving away your name & address to a company presumably saying you are interested in buying security products (i.e. you might not have good security at the moment)?
They sell things like video intercoms etc. as well.
Hm. Are they using the 'rare' 128MB USBs as electronic keys?
If so, we have just gained access to another world. Step throught the door please, ozbargainers. Don't push, ladies first. :P
10 years later
Free 1TB USB
Users: Pfft, 1TB what are those.
Where they found all these 128MB?
They cut up a few 8gb USB sticks that they had lying around.
they cut up the 8gb into 64 pieces
I'm holding out until they include a box of 2.5inch floppy discs before I give out my personal details….
2.5inch Floppy discs ?? You'll be waiting a long time - maybe for someone to invent them first.
3.5 perhaps ? :)
I still have a 3.5 floppy to usb drive. So I wouldn't mind if they send floppies. Only drawback of floppy is its tendancy to be bended and wiped by magnets.
I still have a 5.25" drive around here somewhere
Are you talking about ZIP Floppies?
Still got some 5.25" floppy disks lying around but no drive any more :-(
One day I will be able to play fast-trax again
Back to the old days. :)
And a Walkman!
8 track cartridges no less.
Why not some CANON inkjet cartridges? I am still using I-320 inkjet but my ink supply is running low at the moment.
10 pack or no deal.
tapes are still in use in my house lol
how about 2 million Terabytes
i'm waiting for the Yottabyte
The legendary 'Yottabite' has been found after archeologists combed through Site E1847-A on planet Earth. Other artifacts that also came up with the dug was some plastic bars with the mysterious inscriptions of 'Manchew'.
you forgot the legendary Toy'r'us receipt of Broden where he bought. This was sealed airtight in Glades wrap for all eternity.
On a sidenote : Broden's name should always be in bold.
heck let's vote on the blank posts just to fit in :)
These would have been built a long time ago. I think China still make 1GB, but that's it.
Reveal personal information to random company for something that is practically useless.
You can buy 1GB drives for $6 or less now. If you could buy this it would be in the cents.
Yes totally agreed. 128Mb! That's an antique.
That's an antique.
That's an antique.
Antique Roadshow here i come!
Add me in.
Don't need real information, mate. Just make the name up, give a wasted email address and a PO BOX NO. They will never find you.
I paid 180 quid for a 128MB CF card in 2000. Wish I could return it now and get my money back. That was back when I had money to burn of course.
That sort of deal would've been on OzUnbargain, I take it?
Is that AUD180? I bought a 48MB CF card for about that in late 2000/early 2001.
Hm. I think I picked up several 64MB RAM in computer junks beside roads.
No it was GBP180, so at the time would have been like AUD500, they had just been released. Tottenham Court road FTW! (this was in the days before online shopping and eBay started to take off)
Wow, cutting edge stuff!
I was getting a bit worried that I was ripped off.
Yeah 128MB CF for $180 in 200 was actually a bargain. I paid ~$100 for a 32MB Kodak CF in April 2000. Enough to fit ~70 2MP JPEG photos at medium quality…
128MB of flash memory for $180 in the year 200 would definitely have been a bargain. You would have been hailed as a god for possessing such insane technology.
Good luck finding Australian currency 18 centuries ago though…
ha back then my high school teacher couldnt afford cf card cameras, he had to buy a sony floppy camera. oh how he suffered for it, those things were slow as molasses
2004 called they want their usb sticks back
Oh my God: did you warn them about the Tsunamis, Earthquakes, Justin Bieber?!
You callous b*stard.
Don't forget to send them this factsheet on Fukushima
Plagiarise XKCD is fail
Really? More of an homage.
+1 for spotting it though ;)
You deserve more +'s
1976 Apple Inc. called they want their share of 128MB chips
2032 XXX Inc. transmitted they want their share of 128MB artifacts
bot? simple loop in a bash script (linux) or batch file (windows) calling curl. No bot needed.
They're going to send you hard copy newsletters, yuck. If they just email their newsletters like everyone else today, it would be worth giving a dummy email address to get this.
Good for students.. good for taking documents that need printing etc
And for sticking in the old oscilloscopes my uni has. Won't take anything larger than 2gb (anything over 1gb is a waste for a few dozen photos anyway).
Their technology is as advanced as their security concepts?
yes-since all their security software will fit on this 128mb drive! i think the postage would cost more than the flash drive itself :)
as for usefulness, i still have a 64mb drive rattling around my desk draw, holds device drivers and text docs no problem
And PDF too.
Yes. Their security is very simple and small yet effective. All they need you to do is plug the 128MB USB into your security system. Lie back and enjoy!
you could probably run DSL on it
EDIT: I paid $99 for a 128mb mp3 player from target in 2004. It was half price!
Wow same here - my very first mp3 player was $99 but from Coles (128mb). Now I've got a 32gb one and it's too small. When will we see 1TB mp3 players, pretty soon I should think.
Just hook your mp3 to a 1TB WB Passport and vola, you now have a 1TB mp3. :P
lol my first mp3 player also happened to be 128mb! it was from a computer fair for $150 in 2003. I remember being able only put 25 songs onto it, but i was perfectly satisfied with that many. I also managed to fit some data into the spare space.
Wow! Considering that my first two USB sticks were 256Mb ones that I bought some 10yrs ago, this will be the smallest sized USB stick I'll have ever owned!
I still have my 64MB around and working. Hope this one would replace it. :P
Still have my 8mb IBM memory key, its dead though
Keep it. It would become a collector's item in a couple of years.
I don't see why everyone is so negative about this deal.
Yes, it's a laughable amount of storage nowadays, but it's still free and has uses as the OP pointed out (photo frame) where you'd usually need to buy a $5 USB with a whole lot of un-needed storage.
Usually you put something up free that's worth a few dollars and Ozbargainers go nuts over it!
edit with example:
that was soo last week……. :)
very good demonstration of your pic =]
