  • The June, 2007, issue of Popular Science magazine contained a good safety tip from a user that involved a simple USB drive: "Before our family went to Disneyland, we bought three 32 megabyte drives, one for each of our sons and one for us, all with the same program, phone numbers and 'secret phrase' on them. We labeled the USB drives 'I'm Lost,' tied them to lanyards and tucked them into our boys' shirts. We told the boys to give the drive to someone if they got lost. At Disneyland, our three-year-old did just what we thought he would do - he disappeared. Within 13 minutes of his being lost, though, my cellphone rang. Security had plugged the USB drive into a computer and seen the automatic message. When we went to retrieve our boy, the guard asked for our USB drive with the matching secret phrase on it."
