An IT Thumb Drive Toolkit and Making It Invisible

A thumb drive is definitely essential and cheap gear. But, what software should you store on it to maximize its usefulness?

Well, here's a nice and comprehensive list.

These days, I mainly use my thumb drive for document storage and as a backup card for my camera. But, I really should go through and install the tools on this list to maximize its usefulness.

As long as I'm chattering on about portable storage, I should also mention the very cool site (thanks: ITS Tactical for the link!). Spy coins sells exactly what you think it does: coins designed for spies. That is, coins that have been hollowed out and used for hiding in plain sight. It's all very Cold War, really.

But here's the cool part, a hollowed out nickel or quarter can be used to store a micro-SD card. Which can be used to store thousands of documents, images or other goodies. See, here's what it looks like:

Imagine that, all that storage and it perfectly blends in with a handful of seemingly useless change.

I'd add a spy-coin to my Amazon wishlist, but I'm almost 100% certain that I'd lose (or spend) it within hours. Yeah, they are that invisible and I'm that bad about keeping track of coins.
