Default 1 TB thumb drive

Kingston is about to release a 1TB thumb drive. This will be in the new HyperX Predator line, which already has a 512GB thumb drive.

Looking at this, there are a couple of areas where it looks like they placed style ahead of function. The sliding outer case might make it too big to put next to another USB device. Also, the end of the port is exposed. You would think an engineer would come up with some clever way to protect these things, when caps are not wanted in the design.

Anyway, judging from the size of it, maybe a better designation would be sore-thumb drive.

Also, I wonder who thinks of names like "predator" for these devices, as if this thumb drive is going to attack and kill vegetarian thumb drives. Don't these people ever feel embarrassed by these names.
