We love this idea for a 1GB USB flash drive for holiday gift-giving. The drive housing is designed to look like a cassette tape and you can create the Mixa’s look with your own style. Choose from ready-made images on their site or come up with one of your own. Available in black or white, the device comes with an extension cable at a MSRP of $41.00. Just make sure whoever you give it to doesn’t put it into their old cassette player and push rewind.
