"What can you do with a few gigabytes and a USB port? Quite a
lot, with the right software. Learn how to encrypt your work, run
whole systems, rescue Windows, and customize your thumb drive with
these USB-geared tricks.
"Note: Gina previously rounded up 10 thumb drive tricks in April
2007, and we've borrowed a few of those ideas here. But many of the
apps have updated, some have been replaced with better offerings,
and a few totally new cool things (Chrome OS! XBMC!) have made
their way into this mix."
