Pen Drive - USB Flash Memory Stick Module

The end of Floppy Disk is coming, today everybody use Flash Disk to saving their computer data, me too :)
I have a 128MB PenDrive Flash Disk with Giraffe rubber PenSkinz, I bought it several months ago, with a little disappointed because in the next month the price was reduced to half :(
There is no standard name for this device, sometime called with USB Flash Disk, USB Flash Stick, USB Disk, USB Flash Drive, USB Drive, etc.
The Flash name is came from the memory IC (Integrated Circuit) type that used with this device, knowing as Electronic Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory, usually used for BIOS IC on Computer Motherboard. This IC can be use to saving data and will keep that data even no electricity on it, difference from RAM (Random Access Memory) that will erased all data after no electricity supply on it.
