This is the first post of a new series titled ‘Freaky Friday, IT Oddities.’  Every Friday, we will feature a dose of IT weirdness.  Here goes our first find…

I have no idea what Maxell had in mind when they came up with these AromaDrives, a line of scented flash memory sticks.  Not quite Glade Plugins for your computer, these puppies are good old fashioned USB drives covered in scented plastic.  They even have a little hole in the packaging so you can Scratch n’ Sniff. 

The USB drives are available in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB. In Apple, Strawberry, Chocolate, Lemon, Orange and Mint.  “At $25 for a 4-gig stick, this smells like a bad deal.”
