"I will never go anywhere again where I don't have a copy of my presentation in my pocket."
This was the thought that motivated Israeli electrical engineer Dov Moran to develop one of the most important and famous items in the technological universe: the USB Flash Drive, popularly known as a pendrive.
And since almost every good idea starts from a troubled situation, with Dov Moran it was no different.
He says that he would have a very important presentation in the United States and that his computer stopped working.
That's when he came up with the idea of creating portable flash memory so that people could always have a copy of their important files.
The USB Flash Drive memory was patented and registered in the year of 1998, with the appearance of the first product in 2000.
The success was so great that Dov Moran had his company purchased by SanDisk, a storage solutions company in the United States, in 2006 for $1.6 billion.
Practicality is everything in the world of technology and the pendrive is one of the most loved electronic items, exactly because the storage space is gigantic and its size is small.
Nowadays, you can find these devices with 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
To understand the storage capacity in Gigabytes (GB), starting at 8GB, it is possible to store around 2,000 songs or 400 videos.
If you want a 4GB pendrive, you can store up to 2000 photos on it.
In the 16GB version, you can store up to 32 hours of videos, which would give an average of 8 movies to watch whenever you want, without the need for internet.
A 32GB pendrive allows the storage of 64 hours of videos or more than 9,000 photos.
With 64GB, that's 168 hours of movies or 16 thousand songs.
And finally, we have the 128GB pendrive, which is practically a portable external hard drive that fits in your hands.
With an amazing storage capacity, you can save almost everything on your computer or laptop on this device, as well as having twice the storage of a 64GB pendrive.
Whether to store photos, music, documents and videos, you can find a pendrive with a more traditional format or even models that turn into miniature robots.
There are many options for expressing your cultural tastes, sense of humor and much more.
