8gb Simpsons memory stick £3 staples (Milton Keynes)

18
Found 14th Feb 2014
Found this in my local staples (Milton Keynes) for £3! Says reduced from £5.99 but I think that may have been a reduced price too - they sell for around £7.99 on eBay.
Other Simpsons characters were available too!
I'm gonna pop back for a couple more today!

It's not a memory stick, it's a USB flash drive. This is a memory stick:

All memory sticks are around the same size as a rectangular strip of chewing gum. USB flash drive sticks are much thicker, and use different pin arrangements and controllers.

Apologies!

Can't figure out to amend it - I guess a lot of people refer to them as memory sticks so hopefully won't confuse anyone

We live in a world where these terms are freely (and acceptably) used as synonyms.

The same way where all Hoovers are vacuums but not all vacuums are Hoovers. All Jacuzzis are hot tubs but all hot tub are Jacuzzis.

So long as people understand, no one minds

Edit: Came out completely wrong.

I can't edit comments on this phone, the app crashed as I posted 1st comment, turns out it had been posted. Oh well. A memory stick is a memory stick, and a USB flash drive is a USB flash drive. I buy both, so search HUKD for both. It's not difficult to describe something accurately, and not give a completely wrong and misleading description, is it? It's a bit like saying a Golf GTI is made by Ford.

Got one of these at xmas, 3 quid for 8 gig is hot. Just be aware it's really slow, write speed on large files ~ 4mb/s

A usb flash drive, is a stick shaped device that has memory on board

Get a life!

Just spotted this, how cheesey

I bought one, despite it being £5,99 and my other half loves it

Not in the Liverpool store, these are £5.99. Still seems reasonable though.

Make sure you check the back of the packaging as a guy from work went to look in the Milton Keynes store today and came back saying they were £5.99 - I went and they were £3 still!
