    What I think is so super about his idea is the simplicity of the thumb drive. None of the others seem to have that feature and that is why I think it would be capable of being patented.


    I do not want to steal or even borrow anyone's work so I politely decline your offer. But thanks for sharing.

    Yes Paul patents are all about the application, or design and more over in how they are presented never cheap though. the last one submitted by a company I used to be associated with cost us over 10 K since the principal submitter was over 75 at the time the searches were greatly expedited and at a reduced cost Still patent attys. don't come cheap
