An SSD for your pocket? LaCie is looking to give you just that. The company has announced their newest USB 3.0 compatible FastKey flash drives that take the power of an SSD and shrink it down to pocket size.




Boasting up to 260MB/sec speeds, AES 256-bit encryption for security, and a slick looking aluminum exterior, the FastKey comes in 30GB, 60GB, and 120GB flavors. As you would expect with tech like this, it's gonna cost you; $149.99, $249.99, and $474.99 respectively. As someone who tends to lose flash drives like some people lose socks in the dryer, people like me had better equip theirs with a GPS tracking device after shelling out this kind of cash.
