Chinese New Year is upon us, and with CNET Australia's HQ in the midst of Sydney's Chinatown, we're well aware that we're approaching the Year of the Ox. Kingston Technology is getting on the bandwagon too, launching a Year of the Ox Limited Edition USB stick.

Designed in traditional red and gold colours, it has an ox graphic incorporating the Chinese characters "Yi-Chou" for 2009.

The 4GB drive is available in Australia for AU$19.95. We're not overly superstitious, but for 20 bucks, we might be up for a (practical) lucky charm that holds the promise of good fortune in the coming year.
