Data Storage Just Got Shinier, Sexier

Personal data storage meets personal accoutrement with this heart-shape Swarovski-crystal-encrusted pendant—part of a new line by Philips and Swarovski known as Active Crystals. Not mere ornamentation, this necklace hides a password-protected USB flash drive with 1GB of memory, enough space for 1,000 photos or 250 songs.

One the plus side: You get a twofer that you are less likely to lose; also, Swarovski crystals are essentially glass, albeit glass treated with lead oxide.

On the other hand, something about this is just a leetle much, or are we just turning into fuddy-duddies in our dotage? ::Philips Swarovski
