Ouch, good to know. I would have expected this to work on laptop 
("netbook") that comes with a built-in SD card slot.

I guess you already know, but others may not: There are "nano" USB 
sticks (e.g. Delock "USB 2.0 Nano Memory Stick" [1]) that stick out only 
slightly, thus the risk of it breaking off is minimal. For MicroSD cards 
similar sized card "readers" are available (e.g. Delock "USB 2.0 Card 
Reader micro SD/micro SDHC" [2]). (*)

(*) I have no experience with these models and provide the links merely 
to give an impression of the kind of product I'm talking about.
