Lacie continue to innovate in the storage market, with network drives and monster discs with capacities in excess of 2TB- which is great if that’s what your’e after. But it’s the simple gadgets that often catch the eye. I spotted this one and instantly fell in love. The LaCie Carte Orange offers 4 or 8GB of storage (depending on the model). Lacie say that it is ideal for “exchanging or backing up large amounts of office files, and storing hours of music, videos, photos and slideshows. With its sturdy metal design and plastic bumper, LaCie Carte Orange is amazingly light and thin—far thinner than most traditional 1GB or 2GB USB keys. Measuring at 6mm height and weighing less than 60g, LaCie Carte Orange’s smart and convenient design easily fits in small pockets and wallets making it the most convenient way to travel with lots of data� LaCie Carte Orange is powered by an integrated USB connector, which can be plugged into any USB-equipped computer. The flexible connector allows users to plug LaCie Carte Orange into the port wherever it may be located on the computer, and retracts for safe transportation. LaCie Carte Orange is plug-and-play for newer operating systems—no software or drivers are needed—allowing for quick and easy data transfers from one computer to another. “Mobility, reliability, ease of use, capacity and price are the five main keys to consider when buying storage. We meet them all with the Carte Orange,� says Olivier Mirloup, LaCie Senior Product Manager. “With 4GB at $99 and 8GB at $149, LaCie Carte Orange is certainly the ideal USB key for a variety of uses.� LaCie Carte Orange can immediately be used across multiple platforms (Mac OS 9.x/10.x and Windows 98SE through XP). Simply plug the integrated Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connector into a laptop or desktop and start transferring files. LaCie Carte Orange’s USB 2.0 connectivity offers interface transfer rate of up to 480Mbits/s. LaCie offers an optional USB extension cable, which is a convenient way to extend reach for computers that require a longer cable. LaCie Carte Orange can also be re-formatted to fit specific needs.
