Even if the "Mottainai" bronze USB drive were real gold, it would still pale in comparison to the "Snow" drive. This 4GB storage device has a case made of 18k white gold and trimmed with 96 diamonds totaling 1.44 carats, according to Ubergizmo, and at current market prices that adds up to nearly $19,000. But according to Mii Stor--which offers "a unique range of USB jewelry accessories" (ya think?)--a platinum "Ice" model is on the way with 350 diamonds totaling 5.8 carats. So start saving now.
