USB key struts stuff on fashion runway

SanDisk goes for glossy black look, but it's a pricey one

The trend of computing peripherals as fashion items has led to some egregious excess, but SanDisk is trying to bring good design to the relative masses. Its glossy black "Cruzer Contour" is a high-speed USB flash drive that has "the elegant look and feel of a fine fountain pen or wristwatch," according to Fareastgizmos. While we're all in favor or tasteful equipment, we're still not sure if we would invest $90, $150 or $240 (for 2GB, 4GB or 8GB) just to flaunt a USB key. For that kind of money, we might want a gold pig instead.
