When Smaller Beats Bigger: MosKeyto Flash Drive
The LaCie MosKeyto is one of the smallest flash drives available. Because it lies nearly flush against a computer, the Moskeyto can be left plugged into the USB port on a laptop even when traveling without the risk of damaging the port if the drive was knocked around.
The MosKeyto measures about three-fourths of an inch long and weighs less than half an ounce. It offers capacities of 4- and 8-gigabytes. The cap can be stored on a keyring, providing a fairly safe spot to transport the device from one computer to another. The MosKeyto is both PC and Mac compatible.
Additionally, LaCie has integrated an extra 4GB secure online storage from Wuala into the MosKeyto, which is activated through the driver software installed on the laptop when the device is plugged in. Once files are stored by Wuala, they can be accessed through any Internet connection.
Wuala is owned by LaCie as well and provides online storage service that offers 1GB of storage for free and charges an annual fee for storage starting at 10GB for $29, making a free 4GB a nice bonus.
In contrast to most other online storage services, all files are encrypted and stored redundantly. No one ― including employees at Wuala and LaCie ― can access your private files.
