    The idea of replacing a finger with a USB drive is a pretty awesome one, but that was one ugly finger :D

    "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

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.
