There was just a big 108 BTC hack of that site (me affected as well). If you use it, it is imperative that you enable 2 factor authentication of any sort.

USB key
Which is great until it becomes corrupted, which will eventually happen to any USB key.

Bitcoin wallet is good. USB is better. Paper wallet/writing it down on paper is by far the best.
I don't have too many bitcoin but hopefully in the future they will grow in value so much that I will have no choice but to put the private keys in a physical safe.
Here's to hoping.
