A whole new level to "thumb drive" :-)

Man has finger replaced with USB drive
A computer programmer has had his finger replaced with
a USB drive.

Jerry Jalava, of Finland, says the two-gigabyte prosthetic
finger is not permanently attached to his hand, allowing
him to leave his finger in the computer slot and "pick it
up after I'm ready".

The silicon prosthetic looks like a normal finger, but can
be peeled back at the tip to reveal the USB drive.

Jalava, who lost his finger in a motorcycle accident,
uses the drive as storage for "photos, movies and other
useful files".

"When Jerry told doctors what he did for a living they
joked he should have a USB 'finger drive' but that was
good enough for him, and he set about making one,"
a newspaper reported.
