I am glad that the days of the gigantic wireless receiver for wireless mice and keyboards are gone. Today just about every maker out there uses small receivers for their wireless gear that you can plug into a USB port and just leave there. The small devices don't block the USB ports around them either, which was an issue with large receivers of the past. The average flash drive is still a large and bulky gadget that looks like those old receivers though.
LaCie has unveiled a new flash drive called the MosKeyto that is just about as small as those little nano wireless receivers. The MosKeyto measures a scant 21 x 16 x 10 mm and weighs 10g. Despite the small size of the storage device, it has a decent amount of storage with 4GB and 8GB versions available. This might be the perfect external storage device for netbook users running out of storage space.
The MosKeyto is so small that you can just plug it in and leave it. The MosKeyto is Windows ReadyBoost compatible and supports USB 2.0 ports. The 8GB version of the flash device is $27.99 and the 4GB version sells for $17.99 making them cheap. You can order either capacity straight form LaCie right now.
