Memory card reader as jewelry

Peripherals continue trend as baubles

Akihabara News

Once again, the R&D people at Japan's Elecom may be unwittingly indicating that they have too much time on their hands. Witness their latest creation: a luxury memory card reader. Granted, it looks beautiful in the company handouts--available in silver, black and white a la Apple style, according to Akihabara News--and might even be quite fetching on the end of a white gold chain around your neck, sort of like an updated retro medallion circa 1974. But if you ask us (and no one ever does, of course), the peripheral-as-jewelry craze won't exactly have Tiffany longevity.
