Kindle drowned in movie

I watched an OK film the other day, Date Night, a comdey with Steve Carell (sp), and in one scene theyre trying to access some incriminating data on a flash drive. Carrel is in a cab and he asks the driver if he has a smart phone or laptop. The driver shrugs and says " got a Kindle!" and opens the glovebox.
Carrel puts the flash drive in the kindle, cancelling the soppy book the driver was reading, and the pics are there in a flash! Unfortunately the car ended up in the drink, evidence, and Kindle, gone for good!
The only thing is, and I couldnt help myself here, is flash drives have the large male USB connector and I'd imagine the kindle, like my sony reader and a smartphone, has the small micro USB socket, so technically thats that scene out the window

Does the K1 or one of the Kindle DX models have a flash drive? I know the K2 and the K3 don't. Maybe the driver had a Sony reader.

I thought the same thing when I watched the movie a few weeks ago. Even if Kindle took regular sized USB connections, the device would have the wrong connection for plugging in a flash drive. Plus, the UI isn't quite as convenient as "Hey, I plugged in a flash drive. Here's everything on that drive, displayed in like 3 seconds."

However, I did laugh my ass off at the line "Don't judge me for this, but what's a flash drive?"

Do not laugh. PocketBook 302 does have USB host port, so you can connect an USB "memory stick" to it and read a document from it.

I just added it to my Netflix queue. I remember when Kindles were still really new I'd jump up and point at the screen (sometimes literally), OMG! It's a Kindle!

I don't do that any more... as much.

Yup! It's just your basic Hollywood technical illiteracy in action.
Them's the same folks that brought down an alien starship by feeding it a Macintosh virus.

I'm sure if the movie had been filmed 6 months later the cabbie would have a top of the line iPad and the thumbdrive would've worked just as well.
