Computers have become a part of doing business on a day-to-day basis and also hold all of our personal digital life. Emails, documents, photos, videos, movies, music, work and not work related material... the list goes and goes.

But what happens if we need to mobilize the files from one computer to another?
Some files are too big to email and burning a CD or DVD every time we need to move a file is not only a hassle but a waste of resources.

This is where a flash drive could be used over and over again. With their minimal footprint and increased capacity, these little guys can be placed anywhere and be always with you.

LaCie XtremKey's memory modules are shielded inside of a 2mm casing and sealed with wear-resistant screw threads and a rubber O-ring, which makes it watertight up to 100 meters. In addition, it's resistant to 5-meter drops, heat and cold (+200°C / -50°). Equipped with the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface, the LaCie XtremKey offers instant compatibility, outstanding transfer speeds and cross-platform convenience to all PC and Mac users. They start at $49.99 for the 8GB one.
