The MPro 150 combines several applications into one exceptionally portable package which frees the user from carrying around a notebook.

The LaCie MosKeyto USB Flash Drive is fitted with lace cap and anti – fall. You will be really surprised by its size - measuring less than 20mm and weighs 10 grams, making it one of the smallest USB keys on the market. Intially offering 4GB capacity but later releases will offer capacities up to 16GB.
Those who love novelty storage designs no longer have to bear the cost of the marked-up internal drive. LaCie recently debuted a aptly-named Box, a minimalist 3.5″ SATA USB 2.0 drive enclosure featuring a cool blue LED strip on its underside. Even though the ambient LED glow doesn’t do much, it has become the Neil Poulton’s signature styling cues on a number of LaCie’s external drives.
You also won’t find any fans on the USB 2.0 Box which now relies on natural airflow to provide ‘cooling’ through vent holes on the bottom. For this reason, LaCie recommends using 5,400-rpm drives over 7,200-rpm counterparts. For a drive enclosure, it comes with a generous 2-year warranty with a host of software including Backup Assistant and USB Boost, promising to speed up performance by as much as 33%. The LaCie Box should be found on virtual retail shelves for $40 or below anytime now.

So, if you see a status update containing the message “I just got the Dislike button, so now I can dislike all of your dumb posts lol!!” or “Get the official DISLIKE button now” followed by a link, you should know that it’s another one of many scams that aim to extract your personal data.
