    Yes, it's shown up on plenty of threads, have a search for more info.

    I've yet to see anything turn up from them from over 6 months ago.

    No way! As if you actually got some!

    I know the resources manager got an email about receiving one but have yet to see anything!

    You got yours before all of us, and then gave it away?!

    They are a commercial company and still trying to organise more sponsorship for the usb drives. Once they have made all their money the memory sticks will be sent out. IIRC up to 50% of the drive will be filled with advertising.

    Depends how its done.

    I have a free drive from NEC. It appears as 2 drives, a CD ROM with their information on and another drive for data. It appears as 2 seperate physical drives, not a single physical drive with 2 partitions

    They're usually both stored on the same NAND module irrespective of presentation to the OS. The trick is changing the allocated space for each pseudo-device (yes, it can fry the drive, but it's worth the risk on a freebie )

    I saw them at the Education Show on Friday and gave them a hard time about waiting so long for mine. Their excuse was that they had to redesign the software access interface and add autorun to it as the initial complaints from teachers was that they couldn't get them to work properly!!! Their words not mine. When questioned about new delivery times I was told that they were looking to start shipping within the next 4 weeks.....but I wont be holding my breath as I heard them tell someone else 8 weeks!
    Just as an aside, has anyone seen the ones they're giving away to the kids.....preloaded with educational content....and games....and portable apps
