The diminutive USB drive has undergone a revolution in recent years. It started as an innocent, rectangular Flash drive, but soon evolved into a branding device, then a novelty. People now alter USB drives to look like anything from sushi to Star Wars characters.
It was only a matter of time until tacky, X-rated, or just plain tasteless USB drives made their way into storefronts. Today, in 2009, there are enough of these oddities to compile an entire list. So here they are, folks: The 7 most tasteless USB drives on the planet.
