Hello Kitty's black-hearted assault

New line includes an NEC laptop, mouse, and USB drive--all black.

Hello Kitty Hell

We've known for awhile that NEC's co-branded LaVie G laptops have been cursed, ever since they did a deal with the Sanrio devil . So there wasn't much new to report when the Japanese company came out with yet another Hello Kitty model, though we do think that its black color is a more accurate reflection of evil feline's soul .

But that, as it turns out, was only the beginning of this latest assault. Hello Kitty Hell reports that the black laptop is only one component of a new hardware set that also includes a Swarovski-studded mouse and USB drive. The mouse, by the way, is distinguishable for both its shape and color--a black heart. Need we say more?
