LaCie Little Disks are lovely little hard drives

This, my friends, is how you make storage sexy. These new LaCie Little Disks are like shiny black Zippo lighters, but instead of creating a flame, they hold 30 or 40GB of your data. It's completely pocketable and will allow you to carry around an iPod's worth of data without lugging around a big laptop. The elegant design features a cap that you pop off to reveal a retractable USB cable. Nothing protrudes from it when it's closed, and you always have the cable attached and with you.

You can pick up the 30GB version for $130 and the 40GB version for $160, which, while not cheap by any stretch, aren't terrible prices for such a useful device with such stellar design.
