LaCie Rikiki tiny external HDD is monkey catnip

LaCie Rikiki tiny external HDD is monkey catnip

Your eyes do not deceive you: that is a monkey, and it's attempting to steal your LaCie Rikiki hard-drive.  The grabby little simian has obviously spotted that LaCie's new external drive is the most compact 2.5-inch model on the market, offering up to 640GB of capacity in an aluminum chassis.

"Rikiki", meanwhile, is French for tiny, so the drive is a linguistics lesson as well as a place to offload your media files to.  We're not sure if the monkey is French - surely he'd be wearing a beret if that were the case.

Japanese accessory manufacturer Umazone have outdone themselves with a hard-drive caddy that will likely strike a chord with anyone doing regular software installs.  The Umazone UMA-ISO looks like a regular 2.5-inch HDD drive enclosure; however it also has a small display and, on the side, a jog wheel, which can be used to flick through ISO CD and DVD images stored on the drive inside.  Once selected, plugging the UMA-ISO into a host computer is pretty much the same as dropping the original disc into a CD/DVD drive.
