Did you know that 128 gigabyte flash drives are going for as little as $28 online? That's staggering when you think that just a few years ago, that kind of money would barely get you a 16GB drive.

In fact, you probably have a drawer with older, smaller flash drives that you've tossed aside as newer and larger models arrived. You don't want to just throw them away, but why use them when your newer drive will store 10 times the data? Now you have another option, and it could help bring down one of the world's most oppressive regimes.

When you think of oppressive dictatorships, North Korea is probably very high on the list. It keeps its people under control with brutal punishments and a steady diet of propaganda that paints the rest of the world as dangerous, hostile and technologically inferior.

To keep up the propaganda side, North Korea has to keep its people out of contact with the rest of the world. That's why the country remains in a perpetual dark age with very little technology. In fact, if you ever look at photos from space of the Earth at night, there's a huge dark spot where North Korea is.

That's where your flash drives can help.
