Twelve Gigabyte USB Flashdrive for Old, Old Macs

Pocketec has announced a pocketable 12GB USB drive in a one-inch form factor. That itself is slightly lust inducing, but what’s really peculiar is the stats listed at AVING: compatibility with Windows 98 through Vista, and Mac OS 8.6.

Wait, what? Yah, we don’t get it either, but we do like the switchblade action of the USB plug and the 1.7-ounce weight. It looks to be constructed fairly well, too, so it won’t crush in your pocket like every other damn pocket drive I’ve owned.

We’ll expect it sometime later this year, most likely OEM’ed as some other brand for somewhere around $200.
