Spherical so it may more easily roll off one's desktop and fall to the floor...?
Judging by Typical Lacie external drive buyers it'll likely happen a lot.
Don't think I have anything specific against Lacie... at least nothing I don't hold against any other external drive marketer that does not actually manufacture
the hard drives they mount in their enclosures...
I just find that the typical user who buys this brand tends to be affluent more
I've had several "not quite arguments" with customers about the fact that Lacie is not (and never has been) a manufacturer of drives.
Frankly for what this eye candy will likely sell for it should probably have an SSD inside it (Which Lacie doesn't manufacture either)
