LaCie's keeping up its eccentric branding strategy today with this pest-inspired new USB key. Measuring a mere 20mm in length and 10 grams in weight, the MosKeyto is ready to all but disappear once you plug it into your computer, and it'll outdo its physical counterpart by not only sucking data down but pushing it back out should you want it. Basically, it's yet another miniaturized USB drive and can be owned today, starting at $18 for the 4GB version. 8GB will set you back $28 and there's a 16GB variant to come as well. Got all that? Good. Now buzz off.%Gallery-101243%

LaCie Packs An Elephant's Memory into a MosKeyto
Today LaCie spawns a new breed of USB key – the LaCie MosKeyto, an ultra-small flash drive that's anything but pesky. Joining LaCie's line-up of award-winning USB keys, MosKeyto ups the ante for power, portability and ease of use.
LaCie MosKeyto measures less than 20mm and weighs 10 grams, making it one of the smallest USB keys on the market. Offering capacities up to 16GB, you'll be pleasantly amazed at how many bytes you can get from such a tiny MosKeyto.
The stealthy MosKeyto becomes nearly invisible when plugged into your computer, and can even travel with the computer in a protective sleeve or briefcase – just plug it, and forget it. Because it lies flush against your device, there is no risk of damage to the port, computer or key if the drive is knocked or bumped. Additionally, if it's in your laptop, you won't lose it.
Outfitted in sleek black plastic, the MosKeyto is also equipped with a durable nylon strap to attach to an accessible key ring and a cap to protect its USB connector – so you will never have to worry that its tiny form factor will disappear in the depths of your backpack or briefcase.
"While the MosKeyto resembles to a bug, with its small size and big bytes, this USB key is far from annoying," said Alexis Kobassian, Accessories Product Manager, LaCie. "It provides high capacities in a low-profile connector, allowing you to insert it into your notebook and forget it. And with its low cost/gigabyte price, you can forget about that, too."
Additionally, LaCie has integrated an extra 4GB secure online storage from Wuala into the MosKeyto, making storage and sharing more convenient than ever.
LaCie Moskeyto offers instant connectivity via USB 2.0 to Windows®, Mac® and Linux platforms.
The LaCie MosKeyto is available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, LaCie Reseller+ starting at $17.99. For more product information, visit www.lacie.com.
