iPod Harddrive

Hi all,
Today my 3g 10gb ipod cracked(frontside, so it is unusable as an ipod). I removed the 10gb toshiba drive from inside the ipod. I am 90% it still works.
I wanted to know the posssible uses for this drive and is it possible to use it as a portable hardrive for my future laptop? Does it need a power source?(I only have usb)
I dont know much about the harddrive and what it can be used for so I would like to know some possible uses and what pieces or equipment I would need to make use of the drive.
The conector for the drive looks like this from the front:

*........................*
.........................

Little holes with to bigger ones on the side.

I think they say to never open or expose the ipod product. The battery is supposidly pretty bad to be opened and such. I don't know if you should go in there and start pulling things out. But that would be great if you could still use it.

Maybe you can use the new BittyDock from WiebeTech.
