But the bigger question would be...why? Why would you want a volatile storage device to be removable? Just to save the trouble of installing an I-RAM type device (or just using tmpfs), or additional physical RAM (in the case of ReadyBoost)?

What if you kept the drive 'alive' with a super cap, and with some kind of low power micro/rtc set it to disconnect said cap after a certain amount of time. Kind of a James bond Self destruct function.
On second thought I almost don't want to post this....This is a flavor of DRM i never, ever want to see in real life.

It may be for the more then a bit paranoid, or useful for high risk situations, but a USB drive that erases itself as soon as its removed from the computer would be very useful for those who are doing some.. questionable activities. Similar to the thermite lined harddrive with a panic button.
