This USB will self destruct in 5 seconds …

If this doesn’t lock up government contracts, I don’t know what will. Ironkey has raised the bar when it comes to confidential data on USB flash drives. Their latest offering comes well protected in a metal casing that’s waterproof, tamper proof, and any other “proof” you can think of. Hardware encryption, optional virus/malware scanner, remote access and auto self destruct.

Wait, what?

Self destruct? As in blow it’s self up? Um, no. I’m guessing a built in self secure wipe chip built on to the circuit board. Although, I’m sure the “high ups” asked if that was an option. Hey, it’s even got Mac support … LOL. Ok, seriously, what soldier in the field, in his right mind uses a Mac?

“I’ve got the intel right here … on my Macbook” soldier #1
“What? How are we going to transfer to the data to my Vista laptop?” soldier #2
“err, no problem. Let’s visit the nearest Apple store! They can transfer the data, no problem!” soldier #1

Um, yeah. Good luck with that. Seriously though. Nobody in the field, uses a frickin Mac. The only Apple products dodging bullets is maybe an iPod.
