Will kill off U3


Sandisk and Microsoft are teaming up to release a new USB flash-drive operating system in the second half of 2008.

Microsoft will develop the software and Sandisk will develop compatible hardware for flash drives and flash-memory cards.Microsoft has approached several third-party hardware vendors to licence the technology and the two firms will create a new entity to license compatible hardware.
