LaCie MosKeyto USB flash drive is super small


USB flash drives are dime a dozen, and we know that most of you already own more USB flash drives than you care via trade shows and conventions. Well, the company known as LaCie who has had plenty of experience when it comes to storage devices such as external hard drives has recently unveiled their latest model where USB flash drives are concerned – we’re talking about the LaCie MosKeyto. Nice word play on the mosquito bit, LaCie. This will be a super small flash drive that is anything but pesky, and it won’t carry diseases at all – only important data files. LaCie hopes that their MosKeyto will be able to up the ante for power, portability and ease of use.

Measuring less than 20mm while tipping the scales at 10 grams, the MosKeyto is one of the smallest USB flash drives that you can find in the market at the moment. After all, it will come in a variety of capacities, maxing out at 16GB (yeah, that’s not much by today’s standards but then again it is restricted by its size). Most folks will probably lift an eyebrow or two when you tell them that it totes 16GB worth of data within considering the size of this thing. Even better is the fact that the MosKeyto looks even non-existent whenever it is plugged into your computer’s USB port, and you can travel with it plugged in even when your notebook is in a protective sleeve or briefcase. After all, it lies flush against your notebook, so there is no worry about the port being affected in any way should the drive be knocked around or bumped. Another advantage would be not losing it at all.

The LaCie MosKeyto comes in a sleek black plastic build that lends an air of seriousness, and will also be equipped with a durable nylon strap to attach to an accessible key ring while a cap helps protect its USB connector. This means you will have nothing to worry about at all, as it blends into the background perfectly. Apart from that, LaCie will also integrate an additional 4GB secure online storage from Wuala into the MosKeyto, to make storage a whole lot more convenient. It will play nice with Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, and come in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities with prices starting from $17.99 upwards.

This gadget is proof that we are being fooled into believing these flash drives are capable of a lot more than we currently know. I am sure an average size flash drive if these engineers truly wanted to make an ultimate one this very present day, could create one that holds almost a 100GB in an average size usb drive but why do that when they can milk us with improving the storage size one every few month. Just like car industries, we all know we have the technology to make electric vehicles already but have they started into mas production- no. Why not? Politics, thats why? All politics and bullshit to milk the most money out of consumers from usb drives to vehicles going green by delaying what true technology already exisits.

Another gadget! Too easy to lose!

The standard Flash sticks are a good size, easy to hold and handle! They come in a variety of storage sizes, which is fine! Enough variety for everybody’s needs! :)
