Ultra-tiny USB Flash Drives

Do you know those tiny weeny USB Flash drives (aka Pendrives)? Those who haven't, well here are some links:

I just love them because they are so convenient to carry around. Well, I know some do not think it is a good idea, 'cause they are easy to lose/misplace. I do not misplace them since they are always in my wallet. My only peeve about them is that unlike normal pendrives that use the standard USB type A connector which only goes in one way, the metallic guides/shield (what do you call those things?) are absent on these. So they go in either way, although only one way works. I was hoping someone would put USB pins on the other side as well to address this problem. Is Transcend or PNY listening?
