So I was driving to work this morning listening to Classic FM and for some reason, I cannot remember why, the conversation turned to USB flash drives. This got me thinking as the presenter referred to the small, pluggable storage device that slots in to a USB port as a USB Pen….
A USB PEN??? I mean what? Can you write with it? How is it a pen?
So I got thinking about the different names for them and wondered why there are so many and why people get it so wrong…?
- USB Key
- USB Stick
- USB Pen
- USB Pendrive
- USB Flash Drive
- USB Drive (not technically right… as there are full sized USB drives)
- Memory stick
