I don't really get to see that many movies lately - and by "lately" I mean over the decade or so that usb memory sticks have become ubiquitous.
Of all modern tech stuff, they remain one of my favourite. Barely a dollar a gigabyte now, I'm just intrinsically impressed by their capacity, and continually marvel at the virtual library of information (or portable programs) that can, in theory, be carried around on a key ring. I'm always tempted to buy a spare one or two when I see them on special at Harvey Norman or Dick Smith.
Yet for all of that, I would have thought that information stored on one would have turned up as a plot point in some spy or suspense movie or other. Perhaps one could be swallowed to be smuggled out of a country. Some important plot McGuffin could surely be built around what's on one of them. Yet I do not recall a usb stick ever featuring in an important roll in a movie.
Of course, it may be that I have just missed a movie where one featured. So I would like to know if that is the case. Or should I be writing the first movie starring one? Perhaps the humans could be incidental to the plot.
