Technology is cute

I like a good piece of computer hardware, but they're usually so boring and utilitarian, if not hideously ugly and festooned with blinking blue LEDs. Of course, Apple is consistently lovely, but like 95% of the world, I use a PC.

LaCie, though, has come up with something cute -- this external hard drive disguised as what looks like a mutant LEGO brick. Actually it's designed by ORA-ÏTO, a French designer hewing to the minimalist line. The brick comes in red, white and blue -- I like the idea of an alternating stack of red and white, although goodness knows I don't need that much extra space.

The only problem with them, is that you can't choose the colours yourself - they are colour-coded according to size.

They have gotten some pretty good reviews for performance though.
