If someone isn't offering this yet, why not?

And would you be interested in it? (I would)

What name would you give to the smallest unit of bitcoin (0.00000001)? sat. What name would you give to 100 sats? bit. 1 bit = 1 uBTC. 1,000,000 bits = 1 BTC. It's bits

I'd prefer a floppy disk...

But how would that work ? What would you put on the drive ?
If it's a complete wallet, you'd have to trust the person that sold it to you that he did not make prior copies and that he will not spend the money before you do.
Or am I missing something ?

Why would you want that if you have access to the Internet? And if you don't have the Internet, you can't use Bitcoin...

I know this because Tyler knows this.

If you're wanting to carry your bitcoins around with you on a flash drive you can just copy your wallet.dat to the drive (strongly consider encrypting it in case you lose the drive).  

Alternatively if you're looking for a way to be able to carry your bitcoins around AND t be able to spend them whilst on the go, there's an iphone app at http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=5550.0

Simple: Ease-of-use.

It's for newbies.

"it’s like magicjack for bitcoins"

Here's the business idea:

Create a flash drive that contains everything a newbie needs to get started with Bitcoin
- Encrypted
- Compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux, plug-and-play simplicity
- Wallet
- 1 Bitdime (0.1 BTC) [current value ~1 USD]
    - We can offer drives with more initial Bitcoins as well (and price them higher)
- Bitcoin client (portable)
- The Block Chain, pre-downloaded, as up-to-date as possible
- Instructions on how to open/forward port 8333 (for common routers and firewalls)
- Documentation on what Bitcoin is, and how to use Bitcoin
- A short/simple definitive eBook about Bitcoin

Of course, we don’t store a backup of the wallet, nor the private key in any form. Recipient is advised to backup the wallet immediately upon receipt of the drive! Instructions on the drive will explain how to do this easily.

We'll sell them in various ways at various places.
Goal: Make it just as easy to buy a this preloaded Flash drive, as it is to buy a normal USB Flash Drive from Amazon.com.

- We can put some company branding on the drive.
- If it’s one of these credit card-style drives, customers can put it in their wallet like a credit card.


Interested? Or have expertise that could help with this project? Contact me, send me a message, and I'll share with you the Google Doc with more details Smiley

The flash drive isn't really needed there, just sell a .zip file online with those contents. Also, I experimented with putting my bitcoin data dir on a flash drive and found it to be unusably slow. (Blocks downloaded at maybe one a minute.)

I know this because Tyler knows this.
