I just actually bought a Lexar JumpDrive to carry stuff back and forth with me to different locations. I was thinking these things are becoming so cheap, they can almost give them away. But, Ubisoft and Lexar are putting their JumpDrives to a new use with the an inclusion of a pre-loaded single level of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
on th 1GB and 2GB drives. The promotion runs April 4 to June 15. You'll also get other neato Splinter Cell extras for your PC. Pretty cool way to get the word out on your game and I hope they design the JumpDrives with some Sam Fisher picture on them.
