A 4GB stick is too small; the next one up would be an 8GB (nothing in between), so an 8GB one.

Please, please, maybe post the info to the Mac users of the world for "How large a USB key do I need to fit the Lion installer on?" and save us all having to read all and some 'net insanity suggestions all over again that we've had to suffer with previous Mac OS install version releases all over again.

And maybe provide some relief so that we don't have to read all the older 10.5 and 10.6 type stuff all over again with the various compression and various other stripping method suggestions to get them installed onto a "too small" a flash drive.

But maybe just wishful thinking on my part.

Twice today I heard some variation of "Blaaargh, Lion sucks, It's crap, don't buy into it1111 Apple wants 2 control UR LIFE11111". And twice I've replied with "Uh, it just hit GM today, and I know you're not a Mac developer. Have you even tried it?". And twice now I've gotten the exact same answer: "No.".
Ignorance, gotta love it eh?

And btw... loved you in Jurassic Park
