I think the story is a bit bogus. We all know that software developers are far too uncool to be allowed motorcycle licenses.

Besides, what self respecting software developer uses a 2 gig USB drive? Hell, I`m using an 8 gig SD card (smaller than a USB drive) and I`m about as computer literate as John McCain.

"Ya...we need to abandon the place..but like need somewhere to store our files and poo.."
"i no a man...a cybrog...ttly awsom liek ya"
"Bring him in!"
"k"
"I am heres for all yous...to hold you sh*t on mah finger. So like...ima plug into your database now"
"GET TO THE CHOPPA!"
And he would like get medals and stuff..

Its no different than if you or me made a USB finger extension to put over one of our fingers. the fact he`s putting it over a stub of a missing finger means nothing, it`s just a rubber thing a finger can fit into, that has a usb plug at one end.

Oh wow, his eyes are sunken in and he has horribly greasy hair... I would think he`s a crack addict if they hadn`t already said he`s a developer.

No it does not remind me of that guy at all because the guy putting a camera in his eye is a trillion times cooler than this douche with a crappy low end flash memory stick jammed in his prosthetic finger and loaded with linux of all things...

i was expecting much cooler pictures. however, i was amused by the quote: "Secondly when I`m using the USB, I just leave my finger inside the slot and pick it up after I`m ready." Imagine leaving that in the usb jack on the keyboard of a public computer, i`d like to see the next unsuspecting user`s reaction :) Also, if it were me, I would have sprang for a higher capacity drive than just 2gb... it doesn`t look like it cost very much to produce the prosthetic he is using right now anyway. might as well have put an ipod nano in there, it would have looked just as awkward...

o wow damn misleading titles. I figured that the dude lost his finger an instead of a finger was going around poking stuff with a usb drive, but it turns out that its just like stuffed in a prostetic finger, big whoop

I would design a gun small enough to fit into my prosthetic. If I get mugged, they wouldnt see it coming. Put it to his eye and shoot. And run!<____patent pending.

Guys, don`t take everything so seriously. Hacker or not, that`s one of the lamest things i`ve seen. Doesn`t even look like a finger. I think we are really trying to make news out of nothing.

Oooooh... He uses Linux.... must be one of those evil hackers... -rolls eyes- people need to realize that there are hackers who use other thing than Linux... and non hackers that use it... My school is really bad for that. I am actually not allowed to connect to the school`s internet because I use Linux.

"uh, where did it say he was a hacker?" HE USES TINY VERSION OF LINUX OF COURSE HE IS A HACKER hate when people make completely uneducated guesses about stuff like that WHEN HE HAS DATABASE SOFTWARE, maybe if he had a drating ddos gui or satan or something but no database software
