飛び出し

English translation: Sticking out

Japanese to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Computers: Hardware
Japanese term or phrase: 飛び出し
In the sentence: USBポートに装着しても「飛び出し」が気にならない, regarding a USB memory stick which is much smaller than usual and can thus be left in easily without needing to worry about taking it out when you're carrying the computer around; I'm not sure what 飛び出し means in this context, though.
