Verbatim Store

Sure, it may not look like much. But the Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go Pro has a lot going for it — not the least of which is its 6.8MB-per-second write speed, the fastest of any thumbdrive we’ve tested. When you’re rushing to get the last few files onto your virtual briefcase so that you can head home for the weekend, write speeds like this make a big difference. The Verbatim is no slouch at reading data either, pulling files off the drive at a speedy 12.5MB per second.

All this speed comes in a tiny package, significantly smaller than most USB thumbdrives. When plugged in, a blue light at the nether end of the Verbatim drive pulses gently on and off — great for raves, but a little distracting at the office. The drive comes preloaded with easy-to-use utilities for automatically syncing a folder of your choice and for creating a secure, password-protected partition.

Finally, the drive has one design feature we especially like: The built-in loop for attaching to a keychain is on the drive itself, not on its cap. If the cap and drive ever become separated, the important part will remain connected with your keys. -Dylan Tweney

Message and presentation were inextricably intertwined, with the latter lending power, impact and even meaning to the f

.haiku column No. 1 – Haiku Society of America

Thanks to the internet, haiku is making a return to the kind of collaborative, interactive spirit out of which it originally emerged almost four centuries ago. As the editor of tinywords, I’ve seen this kind of evolution emerge spontaneously on many occasions. To see what I mean, let’s first rewind
