USB flash drives as modern-day dongles

John C. Dvorak has a knack for being infuriating, especially to those who frequent his blogs.

However, I still keep his PC Magazine feeds.

This article is one of the reasons why.

In it, he implores all of us to be vigilant against a possible bonehead evolutionary branch of the humble USB flash drive into a dongle.

He is right.

Before the innocuous-sounding moniker DRM, we all knew and hated copy protection software and devices.

We really need to band together to make sure the days of the dongle are not, and never revisited!
