LaCie Brick mobile hard drives
I never understood why most techie computer equipment had to be plain boring black, or silver, or white for that matter. So I was extremely excited when I finally saw the LaCie Brick mobile hard drive in person. I know it's been out for a good 6 months, but I'd only heard about them, hadn't seen them or held them in my hot little hands.
LaCie Brick appeals to geeks and kids alike. Borrowing the design from the ultimate toy, the Lego blocks, the “2 x 2” size block comes in red, white or blue and goes from 40GB to 120GB (priced from $109.99 to $249.99). The “4 x 2” size block also comes in three colors and goes from 160GB to 500GB (priced from $99.99 up to $349.99). What’s the greatest thing about this design? Not only are these drives functional, they’re stackable as well, so you can make a robot or transformer while you’re at it!
