What could they hide in there that wouldnt be immediately apparent?
The only people they could get would be so stupid they should have already gotten them other ways.

All this NSA shit. Does anyone else remember that anon back in 2006 or something that said he was a part of a team building the infrastructure to listen in to the entire internet traffic in USA in real time? Most told him he was crazy but considering what we know today I'm not so sure he was trolling.
I dun give a fuck about anyone's feels about consumer shit. I give a shit about comedy. Whenever someone says winBLOWS or crAPPLE unironically I want to fucking vomit all over them while fucking them with knives just for the damage done to funny.

So does this mean that given that the port can do video as well you could make a drive that not only identifies as a keyboard and mouse to run the BAD USB code, but also as a screen allowing you to run the code without them seeing all the keyboard and mouse movements?
Good luck. It doesn't even have contains any ICs. Just a passthrough for +/-V lines.
Same way as they can fit a flash drive in this.
