LaCie USB keys

LaCie has introduced several new storage products designed by 5.5 Designers, including the iamaKey, itsaKey and PassKey. The iamaKey and itsaKey are both key-shaped USB flash drives, featuring metal construction and capacities up to 8GB. The gold-plated connectors are claimed to be water- and scratch-resistant, with transfer rates of up to 30MB per second via USB 2.0.

The PassKey lacks integrated flash storage but provides a microSD/HC card reader.

The iamaKey is now available, with prices of $18 for the 4GB model and $28 for the 8GB variant, while the itsaKey carries a price of $15 with 4GB of flash memory, or $24 with 8GB of storage. The PassKey can be purchased for $10.

    All the LaCie key thingies have it backwards.
    Nobody wants to hang their keychain on a computer. The CAP has to be on the keychain. Pull the drive out an and plug it into the computer. Like the Lexar Firefly, which gets the idea right but doesn't have decent performance.

    Nope

    They've got it right. The point of doing this is you're less likely to forget your usb drive if it has your keys on it as well.

    Plus, the other way around, there's the chance of the usb drive falling off the cap and being lost.

    And if they did it the way you say Firefly does it, then would we get a "What's the point? There's 1500 drives like that" complaint?
