LaCie is taking computer geekdom to the artsy level by giving your basic computer peripherals a bit of an edge in the minimalist art culture. Your not just getting a hard drive, but a piece of art or furniture. But when it comes to data and memory space, I think we’ll all agree that we are all mere savages at heart and couldn’t care less about some added desk clutter. Lacie latest venture features a spherical hard drive called The Sphere ($500 for 1TB) designed by Christofle. That’s french for expensive sphere. Hey, if they got the balls to charge $230 for a paperweight, then I guess you’re getting your money’s worth.
I’ve got big balls!
