How about direct download, right into your brain?   I question longevity of Flash media, although at my age, I should not really worry all that much.

You can always copy it to whatever you want, but EVERY computer these days has a USB port.

Can Apple iPads read USB thumb drives with FAT32 filesystem?  Do new iPads even have USB port anymore? I recall that my GF was having hard time doing that, but that was few years ago.

But you right, most larger computers do have USB ports.  I also have a CD/DVD drive which connects to a . . . USB port. So I can read my disks through a USB port.  :trollface:

The Northern Pacific Historical Association send out a couple hundred gig worth of data last year on USB drives. Worked quite well, and the ubiquity of USB allows me to use it on the road (my Microsoft Surface has no optical drive, and cubage is tight so I’ve no plan to get a usb optical device).

I think there should be a fist-fight to resolve this dilemma.  :D

The newer ones use USB C for charging, having switched from Apple's Lightning connector a generation or so ago.  But I haven't tried putting a USB drive (with USB-A to C adapter) in one.
