ADATA brings us a nightmare before summer

Queue this one up for those interested in novelty USB keys: In a timely manner, it being just before summer, ADATA is here to remind us that Halloween and Christmas are never too far away, and that just because its hot, goths don't stop being goths.

Based on Tim Burton's movie and branding vehicle extraordinaire, A Nightmare before Christmas, the Jack Skellington USB key is well, extremely cute. What happened to him being the bony bugger with oversized appendages?

It's not really pocket sized either but THAT'S NOT THE POINT! It's a collectable! He'll sit on your desk and mock you that you need to start saving in May for the October-November-December annual gift-giving period that seems to get longer every year.

Or is that just me? Where's my pipe and slippers?

If you're in Asia you can pick one up now, but ADATA has yet to get a license from Disney to officially sell it, so the US and Europe are out the question for the time being.

In my book that's a perfect excuse to book a trip to the Far East! Holiday + a bag full of exclusive gadgets to sell on eBay when you get home! YAY!

What a terrible product. And I love that film. Why is he so podgy?! How many other ports and connectors will he obscure?

Wrong proportions for Jack, but it's still funky (although horrible from a design/usability perspective)...

Is it just me who thinks it looks pretty nifty with the cap off?

You'd be amazed what you can buy as USB devices in Bangkok-Chinatown :D

And I'm sure at least 99% of the stuff cannot be resold here due to licencing reasons
