* Dropbox isn’t your only option when it comes to transferring files
* Large capacity USB drives have never been cheaper
* From the whimsical to downright weird
You might think that using a cloud-based service, like Dropbox or WeTransfer, to send or receive files would be your only options, but we’re here to tell you that you’re wrong. Why is that? Well, it boils down to two things: storage is incredibly cheap now and sometimes the Internet decides to take a smoke break.
What we’re saying is, it’s a good idea to have an “analog” backup, like a USB drive. You might not use it often but you’ll definitely laugh or get weirded out every time you see it. So here are some of the craziest USB drives we’ve seen on Amazon.
