USB flash drives have been designed as bracelet charms and pendants, the most lavish examples bejewelled with Swarovski crystal.
For less froufrou types, LaCie’s key designs attach to mum’s key ring for take-everywhere access to all her important data. Constructed of sturdy metal, the itakey and iamakey store between 4GB and 8GB flash memory, with the latter being water- and scratch-resistant.
The PassKey has a built-in micro SD (or micro SDHC) card reader, and all keys support USB2.0 for high-speed transfers between PCs and Macs. Prices start at $44.
