LaCie has come up with a new line of cables that they refer to as “practical and fun.” We like to call them cords for the “cable challenged.” The Flat Cables are available in three types of USB interfaces in blue, in addition to the orange FireWire 400 and 800, and green eSATA connectors. Each one has its own labels for more customization. The LaCie cable starts at a price of £9.00 (~$13.00.)

Using your old floppy disks for coasters these days? Poland’s Baba Akcja has designed CDRs in the shape of the 3.5-inch relics. Each one has enough storage space to hold 200 MB of data and comes with white and blue, red, green, and yellow labels to write the contents. You can get one for $10.00 or four of them for $28.00 at designboom. Just don’t make a mistake and attempt to set your coffee on it or try to place its square shape in a round slot.

We just don’t see how selling the exact same product, just in different colored shells, equates to them being for certain activities. We’ll let you be the judge.
