Philips gets bitten by Swarovski bug

Crystals taking over the world

The 'Lock Out' Gadget Candy

It's been nearly a week (gasp) since our last post on a Swarovski-encrusted item, and we don't want to be as irresponsible as we were with our recent lapse in pink products. Crave collegue Caroline McCarthy was quick to scold us for the latter transgression.

So to fulfill our bling-laden obligation, we offer the "Active Crystals" line of fashion USB keys from Philips. Gadget Candy says there are four models: "Heart Ware, Heart Beat, Lock In and Lock Out"--the first two designed as pendants, the last two as keychain attachments. Each stores a password-protected 1GB of data.

There. And we didn't even mention Paris Hilton. Well, almost.
