Words on a keychain

Franklin, who made a zillion spellcheckers the size of checkbooks back in the Pleistocene era of computing, has now dropped an entire dictionary onto a USB flash drive.

Licensed from Merriam-Webster®, the dictionary contains 300,000 words; Franklin has tossed in a thesaurus with 500,000 entries, a Grammar Guide, and a hint machine for crosswords. At fifty bucks, it's cheaper than the Third New International Unabridged, and certainly a lot easier to schlep around.
