USB finger

Hacker gets an USB prosthetic finger. The USB Finger Body Mod:
"...while I was driving my one week old Ducati Monster 696 from work to home, I crashed into a deer. I slided approx. 8 meters with the deer on front and after that bounced from side to side 11 meters with the bike. Last slide was approx. 58 meters with my left hand under the bike. Somehow my backpack got attached to the bike handles so I wasn't able to get rid of the bike while sliding. After the bike stopped I got up and took my helmet and gloves off. I was swearing a lot and started to take cigarettes out of my pocket, thats when I realized that half of my finger was missing...

Then I started to scream and yell until a car came to the scene and I was able to stop them so they could call help. I got to smoke one cigarette before the ambulance came and took me to the hospital. Luckily I was close to Helsinki so they took me to hospital where was great hand surgeon. They amputated half of the finger off."

When the doctor working on the artificial finger heard Jerry is a hacker, the immediate suggestion was to embed a USB "finger drive" to the design. Now he carries a Billix Linux distribution and the Freddy Got Fingered movie as part of his hand.
