For the last few decades USB thumb drives have been a staple to portable memory. Before the invention the USB thumb drive people had to use floppy discs or CDs. They were bigger, more fragile and the general process was more cumbersome. USB was a smaller, more resilient and longer-lasting alternative. Up to this day, USB is getting smaller and there are more improvements being made.
However, USB thumb drives may not be the best method for storing or transferring files. Since it is physical, there is always the risk of losing them. That is the reason why many people are resorting to Cloud sharing or storage as it is easier to update the file saved on to Cloud and there is little danger that you will lose it if you manage to forget or lose your USB drive.
Not only that, in order to use the USB stick, the device needs to have a USB slot. This can be a major flaw when it comes to file sharing between phones or between a mobile device and a laptop. Although most laptops may have these USB slots many phones do not, in which case, you will have to purchase a special cable connecting your phone to your computer. This can be a nuisance in daily life and a disaster if you forget these small devices or cables for an important business meeting or presentation.
Luckily, we can do better than the USB thumb drives. Nowadays file sharing can take place without having any physical device to visibly connect a phone and a computer.
