A Flash Drive Adidas Won't Sell to You

Bloggers or journalists who've sold their soul will tell you that freebies are the best part. Many times these free giveaways aren't available on the market, like the Adidas USB flash drive pictured below:

Shaped like a minuscule roll-on suitcase, the USB drive features a plug that folds into the bottom, a tiny handle that doubles as a key chain loop, availability in at least three different colors, and the famous three stripes on the front. Info on available capacities was unfortunately lacking, so to those who encounter these in the wild, feel free to share the scoop.

It's unclear why Adidas would distribute luggage-shaped remembrances—maybe shoes would be more appropriate for their branding—and if they've already done so in the first place. Maybe the suitcase is a metaphor for the favorable angles that media should carry away from the press event?

Designer: Arthur Xin

    I am a firm believer in exercising the choice not to read articles that aren't of interest instead of bitching about them. So, please take the following as "user feedback":

    Why is this news? Why is the headline so vague that I actually clicked it (Adidas, Flash Drives... huh?) only to be annoyed by the lack of content?

    Please think about refocusing on actual tech-related articles. You know, about computers, computer technology, etc.

  • Have to say, this is one cool looking Flash drive. :)

    Wonder how many Gigs they made it in?

    It resembles less like luggage and more like a whistle a referee would where around his next at basketball games.

    Adidas' shoes are so ugly I guess they feel compelled to give you an attractive flash drive to compensate.

    heh Adidas makes the best looking shoes. I probably own almost 10 pairs of Superstar II. Nike is the one that makes butt ugly shoes. And sadly although their Airforce 1's look semi decent, they pale in comparison in quality and looks to some oldschool Adidas kicks.

    Also these usb flash drives are ugly :-) how it made news on here boggles my mind.

    Also, did anyone else think that the entire article was very poorly written? "Bloggers or journalists who've sold their soul will tell you that freebies are the best part." I understand what Rico is attempting to say but seriously wtf. Either Tom's fired all their editors or someone forgot to read this thing before it was posted.
