From CNet News:

Memory stick channels your inner Wordsworth

Here's something for those who would say nature and technology don't mix, at least in the portable storage department. Oooms has rolled out wooden memory sticks that are exactly what you might expect: a flash drive encased in a chunk of wood.

The Web site puts it more poetically: "The sticks are picked from the woods and are manually selected on their natural beauty, professionally handmade into unique and personal USB memory sticks." Each memory stick is meant "to stand out against its natural environment of computers and offices," according to the maker.

A 256MB wood memory stick sells for 45 euros, or $57.67, on the Web site; 512MB goes for 60 euros or $76.90; and 1 gig lists for 70 euros or $89.72.
