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.
