LaCie, a hard drive manufacturer has teamed up with a French luxury brand, Christofle, to release a new USB flash drive that looks classy enough to pass off as a valentine’s day present! Made from silver and hand-crafted in France, the Galet is supposed to be a luxury accessory like a Mont Blanc fountain pen or a Cartier watch – an overpriced choice for what it does, but people purchase them anyway. The Galet will cost you around $150 for 4GB of storage. The only thing that could possibly justify its price is its silver body and the amount of stares you’ll get every time you pull this out in public (if you’re a fan of the attention). It will be available online and in Christofle boutiques worldwide. Head over to the LaCie site for more details.
