A USB drive to shame the entire Swiss Army

Up to $6,000 for a useless "luxury" drive.

Chip Chick

The most remarkable thing about this particular item is that it's the first silly USB flash drive dubbed a " luxury item " we've seen in more than a month--which, as these annoying keys go, is an eternity. Yet the "SwissMemory Prestige" is in a class by itself.

Where to begin? The cost, for one--ranging in the gold and diamond versions from $3,200 to $6,000 for 1GB of storage, which is hardly anything these days. Second, their designs don't exactly lend themselves to elegant wearable jewelry. And third, as Chip Chick rightly points out, this is undoubtedly the most impractical of items ever to bear a Swiss Army mark. Talk about adding insult to injury.

Other than that, we think they're just fine.
