(Gizmodo) It’s sad that these days, almost anything that refers to itself as a ‘spy something’ is probably pretty pedestrian when it’s all said and done. So while this “SPY DISK with card reader” isn’t amazing, it is surprisingly enough that it actually does something cool at all. Available with internal memory sizes of 128MB or 256MB, the cap-end also functions as an SD/MMC card reader.

You can’t copy directly from the SD cards to the internal memory — you’ll have to copy to your PC, then back — but it’s a pretty great idea in general, even if it doesn’t shoot lasers or eject poison gas. And hey, it’s USB 2.0! Maybe the cheap gear is finally starting to see the light of fast transfer rates.
