    Call the Flashbag the technological equivalent of a blowfish. The USB flash drive by Russian designer Dima Komissarov has a built-in micropump that expands and contracts the storage device depending on the amount of data it's holding. When the drive is about to inflate you'll see an error message on your screen: "There is not enough free space." When switched off, the Flashbag stays pumped up, letting you estimate at a glance how many more pictures, books, albums and other space hogs you can stuff onto it.

    It is under jokes and humor. It is good for a laugh.

    There is no product so, stupid, useless, and overpriced that you can not find a sucker willing to waste money on it.

    PT Barnum said it a hundred years ago. "There is a sucker born every minute."

    Consider the Hummer II. An unreliable, inefficient, Chevy Suburban chassis with an aerodynamically inefficient, ugly body on it being snapped up by the thousands with $3.50 gasoline looming in the near future. ;)
