Celebrate 2012: Win a Lacie 8GB CooKey USB Drive

Welcome to 2012. And to celebrate, all of us here at SFC are giving away the LaCie 8GB CooKey, a wicked sharp USB drive that provides ultimate protection, while its style gives you a reason to actually hang a USB drive on your keychain. It’s both rain- and scratch-resistant, so throwing your keys around every day won’t damage your precious info inside. The CooKey also comes with encryption software to hide those private pics and the LaCie PC/Mac® Lock software allows you to log on and off your computer simply by inserting the CooKey. All in all, a great way to store all the memories of a new year.
