If Bogey were alive, he'd have this hard drive

Prestigio makes a portable version that looks like a retro cigarette case.


If ever there was a sign that geekdom had gone mainsteam, it would be the marketing of portable hard drives as fashion and designer items. And until now our personal favorite, for obvious reasons, was one that resembles a pocket flask.

But there's a new contender coming from Prestigio, whose motto is "The Art of Hi-Tech." Not only is the "Data Safe II" bound in leather, as others have been, but it also resembles a retro-styled cigarette case. Uber-Review notes that its specs are far from the fastest for this device, which comes in 80GB and 160GB capacities, but in this case that's apparently the sacrifice one must endure in the name of fashion.
