I didn't know that such an invention was invented by a Malaysian until I read it here. What an innovation in storing whatever needs that we can think of.
Just take a little of your time to read this.
"The man who invented USB pen-drive is a young modest Malaysian who can't even get into a local University but invented the most versatile, indispensable computer peripheral today. And helped his adopted country, Taiwan make $31bil in the process. The rest is history...."
