Lexar teams with Google to provide desktop apps

Lexar will now be including Google applications on its line of JumpDrive USB drives. You will be able to access Picasa, Google Toolbar and Google Desktop Search right from the flash drive. This is obviously a welcome development, because Google is such a hard company to find on the web.

The whole thing works just the way you would expect – when you plug the drive into the USB for the first time you’ll be asked if you want to install the software. When you accept, the software is loaded onto your desktop. Once that is done the programs will be removed from the flash drive.

I suppose that this is designed for people who don’t have internet access, or else it is for those six people in the world who don’t use Google 20 times a day already. I just hope a bunch of other companies don’t start thinking that this is a good idea, because I don’t want to have to say no to 20 ‘special deals’ every time I use a flash drive.
