Last week, I wrote about a 4 gigabyte jump drive for sale for only $6.99. That sale ended. However, a new sale has taken its place and it is equally attractive. Staples is now selling 8 gigabyte jump drives for $14.99.
An 8 gigabyte jump drive will hold the equivalent of more than than 5,400 floppy disks or more data than 12 CD-ROM disks. Jump drives are also much more rugged than floppy disks or CD-ROM disks. Not bad for $14.99!
As I wrote last week, "These devices are great for short-term backups and for transporting data from one computer to another. Want to copy data from your desktop to the laptop computer? Use a jump drive. Want to copy data from your cousin's genealogy database and take it home with you? Use a jump drive."
You can find this special at http://tinyurl.com/yb7gqzm. Click on the "Check in Store Availability" link to see the jump drives are in stock in a Staples store near you. If not, you can order online and specify delivery to your nearest Staples store with free shipping.
